Parking at Willow Springs and walking up the gravel track takes about four hours if you have lunch at the top. There is a boulder about 100m from the end of the trail that provides a great photo opportunity, if you have a head for heights.

Awesome hike. Wont take long at all if you take a 4x4 high clearance vehicle to the trail head. But if you park at the bottom on the scenic drive and hike up Rocky Gap Road like I did, that part alone takes 90-120 minutes one way. It's worth it. The view is 10/10, and the terrain is pretty gradual with almost 0 scrambling. Trail is easy to find/follow.

I started at the base of Willow Springs Picnic area which added about 6 miles to the 2.6 mile hike. The initial ascent is on a 4x4 road until you get to the trailhead. Beautiful hike with breathtaking view from the summit.
