Certainly a challenge. First mile or so is solidly runnable, then turns to stop and go scrambling, and finally straight scrambling and bouldering. Double tack to single track to almost narrow deer trails. Hard but well worth the effort.

Overgrown so much that enjoying the area is limited, therefore the effort isn't worth it! We found the difficulty (not roots or muddy just rocky and steep without steps in sections) too challenging for the reward. In short, our group of 4 all agreed: skip this one.

We hiked 5/18, clear sky, high was in the eighties.

Deep slushy snow on the day we went. Didn't bring snowshoes so sank in up to the knee every 3rd step. Made for a long and tiring day- had to turn back before the top. Views beautiful along the way.
