A perfect hike. A total of 4 miles, 2 out and 2 back. It poured the night before and morning of, and the trail was in good condition. Little mud, Lots of rock and an unbelievable view at the summit. Taking our time it was about a 2 hour and 15 minute hike. Would highly recommend for anything not looking to kill themselves, but get a solid workout. Saw a number of people and dogs!!

Very easy to follow, great views. Extremely muddy, very buggy

Very buggy so if you have anything that works against those nasty little black flies bring it! Also quite a few very wet spots that we had to work around so boots is recommended rather than shoes at least until it dries out a bit. The terrain varied quite a bit and was challenging in some spots so the hike never got boring. The view at the end made the bugs and wetness worth it!

for a 3000 footer, it was a short trail. great views from the summit and the trail was clearly marked. the only downside was that it was very muddy at times.
