To start, this should be a "hard" not "moderate" hike. The other reviews are misleading because the trail to the top is very strenuous. It is 4.8 miles up hill. The last 2.5 miles are all rock. The last .2 miles require you to use hands a feet to pull your way up the mountain. Climbing back down is equally difficult with the number of rocks . While the trail is a great all day hike, it is not for kids or people that don't hike regularly. Beautiful summit that's worth the effort, but if you're not up for it you'll likely never see it.

As my second Mountain this was the hardest obviously. At 4,500 feet the 4.5 mile trail was short but very rocky and uphill, stopped a lot but probably one of the easier 4000footers I'm sure.

Gorgeous, very easy 4.8 miles to the junction of Garfield Ridge. A short, strenuous .2 miles to one of the most brilliant summits out there. Nothing short of a perfect day-hike for all abilities, as long as you have the right clothing and foot gear!
