Nice trail ... good workout. For the 2nd year in a row we managed to be on the trail picked for the 100mi marathon run. Lots of nice folks in the run. Wildlife included a nice sage grouse, deer, eagle and hawks. Smoke was clearing, so visibility was greatly improved.

Easy to walk up except for the lose dirt road that makes you slide around and the altitude jump at the end. Spectacular view at the top.

Hard? Yes and no. There are a few seriously steep parts that I needed to rest on the way up and shuffle sideways to go down. The trail is all dirt road. There are a few spots to camp up there if you don't mind foot traffic in your tiny spot. definitely sunny and dusty. The rock was cool; the view not as spectacular as others but still worth it.

Great hike. Moderate hike imo. Very sunny, not a whole lot of shade so bring sunscreen! Beautiful views!

This walk is hard to beat. Absolutely beautiful. I'm 71 and loved every minute of the walk. Only wildlife we saw were birds, chipmunks and butterflies.

AWESOME hike!! Wildflowers were BEAUTIFUL!! You should be in good shape to do this hike and shoes with soles that grip- like hiking shoes recommended. Take water/ snacks/rain jacket- always be prepared for weather. A small rain cloud formed on a day with 0% chance of rain- well there was a little rain.

Easy hike if you're in decent shape. Great view at the top after 20ft scramble.
