Starts with a steep incline that will immediately turn around anyone with knee or back problems. Many of the steep inclines are followed by a short leveling out and then start back up. The middle mile or so between the bottom and summit is flatter and right next to a stream and waterfalls here and there. The signage disappears after the first few times and is nonexistent above 1000ft. We chose a bad weather day and had very low visibility and the rocks higher up we very slick. For safety and lack of a visible trail ahead we turned back around 2000ft. Still managed to get some breathtaking photos and i’ll be back one day to make it all the way up, right now i’m going to settle for a long ice bath. #rookie
