Nice hike but I wish more was above the tree line. Lots of ups and downs in the beginning and after the pond. Glad we didn’t bring our lab. Would have been too hard for her after the pond.

Hard, but well worth the effort! Lots of ups and downs the entire trail, so you don’t feel like you get a break going either direction. However, views along the way, and at the top, are gorgeous. Encountered a few thru-hikers but not too much traffic. Highly recommended for those in good shape.

Amazing challenging hike! So worth the view even with the wind and 30 degree weather!

Gorgeous, strenuous hike - limited water sources on trail, so be prepared.

Great hike. It's marked as easy on this app, however it's definitely not easy. It's 5.8 miles out and back. Steep at times but couple level areas. Brought my dog (mixed breed terrier 25lbs) and he made it, but not sure how. Some boulders were steep and high. Peak was 360° views! Also make sure you check out The Cave on the way up.
