Nice hike with incredible views! I had to take several breaks along the way up because it was steeper than I imagined. Next time, I’ll hike it in the morning to stay cooler (there’s no shade).

This was my first Hike in the park. It was beautiful! I am not in outstanding physical condition and I needed to stop and rest several times on my way to the summit but so worth it! The trail is rocky and snow covered in winter I recommend using Yak trax .
