Very rocky at top. I struggled a bit and Im a pretty good hiker. Definitely use poles, no shade at all towards the top. It was an 85° day. Sun beating down. Use bugspray, sunblock, maybe bring a hat. Great views at the top. Several views before the summit. Very rocky trail. I'll do it again in the fall

Some narrow areas but has some shades . Great view at the top. It can get a bit steep last half but I would say this hike was fun . Decent amount of space for parking .

Great trail and spectacular 360* view at the top. Decent trail for those looking for a good climb without being overwhelmed. Smaller parking area but crowd was considerate.

The trail was well maintained and very well marked. There was relatively little traffic on the trail and everyone was respectful of social distancing.

Great hike up to a very windy summit with a good amount of rock scramble. Much easier/more enjoyable than the over-trafficked white dot trail from the main parking lot. But small amount of parking available in the lot on Old Troy Rd - get there early! Bring a windbreaker or warm layer for the summit.

Fun trail, but definitely on the more difficult side of moderate. The view is worth it though!
