Yes the trail goes up. My son (12) and I did this yesterday in hopes of staying at the look out for the night. My pack was to heavy in part because I packed water not sure if there was a source up there. There is and a very good source. SO NO NEED TO PACK IN WATER other than what you need on the trail. The look out was kinda like a woodshed or attic ... w everything broken and beyond worn out. It was occupied when we arrived so we eventually decided to head back down , it was fogged in at summit anyway.

Nice forest views / limited vistas / many many trees down on hunchback section, tiring and challenging climbing over the log field.
