Oh man what a hike. not sure who comes up with these distances but our round trip was 14.5 miles. with that we did make a wrong turn at the 4 wheel drive trail and went up that path about 1/4 mile so i figure remove half a mile that is 14 miles round trip so i would say the app description is off by a mile.

Anyway great hike great view of rosemont res off to the south west and springs off to the south east. we went up on a very cloudy day so up on top we were right below the cloud bank and then the wind blew up a large bank of clouds so we were totally surrounded....it made it really awesome.

some advise when you come to the fence opening at the 4 wheel trail go left about 50 yards and pick the trail up to the left. there are carins to mark you from there. other than that the path is easy to follow, with all of then rain as of late it is a bit washed out but hey it is the mountains.
