I hiked this on Thanksgiving Day, 2017. The trail was very well marked and conditions were excellent, hardly any loose rocks or roots. There were a few wet areas but they were easy enough to maneuver through and my feet stayed dry. Great view to the west via a side trail about 3/4 of the way up and a nice (partial) view at the summit.

Nice trail. Felt secluded. Nice views on the ledges about a quarter mile past the summit. Had no troubles following the cairns up there. Spent the afternoon sunbathing up there. Walked to the trailhead from Crocker Pond Campground.

Spectacular forests and views. But I would rate it moderate for all the stairs and elevation gain.

Very pretty and very easy trail. Lots of beautiful foliage on the way up this mountain. The overlook is clear with great views of the surrounding ranges. We hiked on a cloudy and hot day and were blessed with cooling rain at the peak.
