Really nice hike!
About a mile in from the road I came upon a mama black bear with 3-4 cubs. Very cool, but somewhat scary. Once they saw me and ran away I continued my hike.
The first 2 miles or so are pretty mellow hiking through the forest.
The last half mile or so though is actually quite steep with nice views, a little scrambling and lots of very loose rock and dirt.
The very top features bald ledges and 360 views.
Pretty spectacular given the relatively small amount of effort.
