Up hill the while way, but nice views.

Was foggy when we went last Saturday, 6/3, and definitely a butt kicker, but totally worth it. Great way to get the season started. That 20% average grade was a steep reminder of how much I need to work on. Ha!

Incredible views from North and South peaks. The hike is a grind if you're not prepared for it. A little bump at the beginning and then nonstop climb to the top. Long switchbacks. Straddles the line between moderate and hard, in my opinion. Great hike.

Its a short trail but a steep climb of about 20 percent incline. The peak has both a North and South viewpoint which are equally beautiful. I would highly suggest this trail. The view was worth it!

Definitely some steep spots. We lucked out and got a view at both viewpoints. We took the trail down instead of going down the road. Very popular hike, but for good reason.

It's a steep incline so you'll want to be prepared. The view is worth it though!

little more challenging than we were expecting.

Perfect for a short, little afternoon jaunt up a hill.
