Can be a tough hike but so worth it. The mountain has a pretty steep ascent, but great peace at the top. I started near the falls where they enter the pool and made my way to Buck. There are multiple ways in I believe, be careful because I had to help one couple find their car, a half hour away. Get out and enjoy this one!

This was a pretty tough hike. There are many different trails to take, and each of the markings fit perfectly with the map. A lot of rock climbing on the way up, and the view at the top is beutiful.
