Great trail, little icy in spots only a couple of ins. of snow. Top has a super 360 degree view.

Great hike. Some powder up there now. Would rate the rock scramble closer to difficult. Not very friendly for smaller dogs, at least this time of year.

one of my favorite hikes in the valley. The views are worth all the effort.

Great hike. The view at the summit was one of the best I have seen.

Great hike! Starts off pretty flat for the first half and the path is mostly dirt with covered leaves/pine needles. The second half turns to mostly rock (mix of loose rock and large slabs) and gets pretty steep at parts, more so on the way down. A couple "false" summits because of the great views, but you certainly know when your at the top with great 360 views. We hiked on a Thursday afternoon and only saw about 6 people.

Great day hike for people looking for a view and a decent hike. More difficult towards the top, but definitely worth it. Will leave you breathing heavy at points, and happily walking along at others. Good for active pets, though we saw two dogs smaller than 2 ft tall at the top, so it may work for all.
