The first 2miles are INTENSE... but it's worth it. It's beautiful and you feel very accomplished afterwards!

I've done this hike in the snow and in the summer. I prefer this hike in the summer personally. It is a great thigh burner with mostly uphill at the beginning, which also means downhill on the way back. The trail is well maintained.
