There are 2 routes to choose from— the steep, straight out shot trail (1.8mi RT) and the meandering, switchback trail (4.8mi RT). I took the steep one and definitely an butt-kicker for the incline grade plus the elevation gain in such short of a distance. Nonetheless the view at the top is amazing and you can see the beautiful town of Hailey down below. Worth a workout for a short amount of time!

views from the top are stunning. it's a challenging hike but very rewarding. Great for hiking in winter as it's one of the few snowless mountains. Everywhere else you look has a lot more snow. As others have said, it is completely shadeless though, so I could see this being completely unenjoyable in the summer.

This hike pretty much blows. The views at the top are awesome, but it's totally exposed and there aren't any real views until the top. if you want to go for a more "adventurous" route up this, go out to the bench and then straight up the ridge line. It's a better workout and it's kinda fun navigating the rocks.

No shade, start early and carry extra water, views are just ok, wildflowers in spring.

Short but fun hike. Easy to fit in a quick hour hike to see city.

Enjoyed the trip! Took the long route rather than straight up!

It's rather steep to bike on. Hiking is nice. Two choices, switchbacks or right up the ridge. No shade.
