Really fun and challenging hike with spectacular views. The first 3.5 miles to the base of the mountain aren't bad at all. The final ~1300 ft scramble from the bottom to top is easy but physically demanding. Plus you've to come back down the same way which will definitely take a toll on your knees so carry walking sticks for support if you want. We took 4 hours to summit and 3 to come back to the parking lot. Carry healthy snacks, a beanie and cold weather jacket. Highly recommend this hike!
