Definitely should be considered hard rather than moderate. I’m in pretty good shape and it kicked my ass. The views were decent but not worth the first two miles of steep incline. I feel like I destroyed myself for 3 hours only to come across so much snow that I turned around before reaching the very top.
I did like how desolate it was. Only ran into 2 bikers a mile out from the trailhead on the way back.
