Short hike from summit parking lot to top of Marys Peak great views From the parking lot follow the main trail/road (to the east of the parking lot) up to the summit of Marys Peak. This is a well maintained gravel trail and there are several single-trak trails (like the Summit Loop Trail) that branch off. There is a significant elevation gain, but it is not long. Only the very old or very young might have difficulty. A wheel chair could be pushed up it, but it would be difficult because of the angle near the top. One of the best times to visit is the month of May when all the flowers are out.

Short hike. Not hard. Best on a crystal clear day.

I will do this one again in daylight sometime instead of midnight so I can see the views it's famous for. I will say it's pretty steep, and slow going in March when the ground has anywhere from 2-12 inches of snow on it. Also very windy so maybe don't go when it is sleeting out unless you're in need of a serious exfoliation. What can I say, Ingress is a strange game

Beautiful views! It didn't really feel like a mile. Would love to come back for sunrise/sunset

Everything I've read says this is a difficult trail, and while it is uphill that is the most difficult part about it. I hiked this with a friend and our dogs on a cloudy somewhat rainy day and it was still beautiful with the fog and rain. Because of the fog there was no spectacular view from the top, but it was well worth it. Thin trails though. Soon I'll do the whole trail.
