Echoing previous reviewers; easy hike to start then the climb becomes moderate/hard during the last sections. We found heavy clouds during our ascent leading to poor views but that’s legit the course at this elevation! Easy to follow & well marked trail. Parking gets full but plenty of on road options. Plan on a 5 hour round trip in good weather. FYI gondola and lodge is open and also in area of summit leading to increase in foot traffic. One water spicket available near summit.
