This was my first big hike as a "regular" hiker, not having hiked much before but now weekly, and it was challenging. The first section is scrambling up a hillside and a winding, wide trail up Peruvian gulch. The fall colors were just starting to show. Several feet of snow toward the top made it a real work out; the weather was great. The views from the summit were amazing. I took the tram for free to go back down and enjoy Oktoberfest. I would recommend this hike, however, it gets precarious the last mile and those afraid of heights might not enjoy it.
