The parking lot was full and the summit was packed. The view from the summit was just ok, BUT the hike to get there was beautiful. We took the long scenic route which had many wooded areas to stop and explore, and we found salamanders and birds to watch. We just didn't enjoy having to cross roads during the hike. There were a few parts I would call moderate but it was mostly an easy, fun hike.
