Good hike with gradual ascends. Very manageable.
A bit challenging I. Finding the summit with the beautiful views. There are no real markings that lead you to the views.
We marked a tree with notching if you see you can walk off main path towards the summit.

Pretty easy hike and with a great view at the top with a neat fire tower. Make sure you walk around the fire tower to get the highest view on a big rock. Took us about 2 hours 35 mins to go up and come back down to the car. Couple steep parts and wet but otherwise great hike.
