This trail is no joke! Very strenuous as the first 4.5 miles are uphill. When you reach the fire tower it makes it all worth it! Unbelievable views!! So worth the labor of uphill hiking! Mostly downhill descent on the way back to the trailhead. This hike is not for a beginner.

Great hike. Steep going and coming but the view is worth it!
