Tough hike but rewarding. It tested the crap out of me especially because I'm petrified of snakes and saw 2 huge black ones (which is a given, its nature) but mentally challenging especially because part of it is in the forest. Great views from the mountaintop mid hike. Took us about 4 hours and plenty of breaks. One time was enough but its worth it.

This hike is fairly easy going up and rather tough terrain heading down. I would suggest sticking to the red trail which hugs the outside of the mountain ledge. This trail is very well marked but not heavily traveled at all. Took 4.5 hours with 3 stops to rest and snack. Makes for a great Saturday!

Long hike with some great views. Can get crowded. In my opinion it should be rated moderate.
