This trail olnly gains about 400 feet in the first half a mile. After that, it's about 2600 feet on a stair master. On average you gain a foot for every 4 feet with much of it significantly steeper than that. The view is fantastic but the trail is just as tough coming and going. The meadows at the top give you plenty of room to have a seat and soak it all in.
