Steep and difficult at the end but the views are worth it. Slippery sections, be sure to wear shoes with good grip.

Great Hike! Took about 1:45mins up and 1 solid hour down. First 1/2 of trail is easy, next 1/4 is moderate and the last 1/4 is hard. Definitely worth the views!

Great hike going UP, but coming back down was pure misery. We got caught in a storm at the very top, and the trail turned to mush and mud. Fell over a dozen times

Its a good trail, some steep tricky spots but the view is spectacular. The only real downside was the onslaught of flies that came midway and didn't really dissipate (unless there was a strong wind) until you hit the midway point back down again

Great trail, and good for dogs. The top was a little slick because of the recent rain but beautiful hike!
