Excellent trail conditions, dry but very steep. Very few switch backs.

Hiked here Thursday September 28th. I got a bit hot on the way to the summit so I took off my pink jacket (gloves and beanie in pocket) and left it on a branch off the trail. Upon descending approx 45 mins later my jacket was gone. If you happen to have it please email me. Thanks.

Love this challenging trail with an epic view at the end. Not for the faint of heart.

Tough hike because of the amount of elevation gain in such a short distance but well worth it for the views!
