Lots of flatter sections and the brutal steep section to the summit (~ 1/2 mile). Really loose and step and I ended up slipping on the way down. Has some of the best views of Angeles Forest I have seen but hike wasn't my favorite. Watch your footing on some of the flatter trail sections, I had my foot sunk into a few hidden animal holes. Sooo many flies on the downhill section before the climb to the summit but that is to be expected this time of year in Angeles Crest. Next time I will go up to Mt. Waterman from Three Points and it doesn't seem to have the dip into the saddle, followed by a crazy incline!
