got a little lost at the start, so we ended up aiming for the Boulder. the dirt road you take off the highway to get there is very well traveled. lots of traffic. overall a great hike, you can see Black Elk's Peak, formerly Harney Peak, and Cathedral Spires.

Amazing! The view is beautiful, you can rock climb if you want, and very peaceful! Would definitely come back!

The northern tracks dead-end about half-way up. Definitely not traveled enough to be considered a "trail." Easy enough to find the peak, though, since you just hike south and up. 40 minutes up and 25 minutes down for me.

If you're looking for a trail, it'd probably be better to start at the dirt road to the south west and hike up it. Maybe also take the spur to the south west; I haven't checked that out yet.

The view is great. Definitely worth coming out here. You will have to climb some boulders at the top. I wouldn't say "Hard" difficulty is appropriate (unless you're coming from the north).
