12 miles and 4000' elevation is quite the challenge. It is absolutely just as hard to get back as it is to reach the summit. Definitely recommend poles. All in all, took my group about 5:40 to complete.

This is a great training hike. Challenging and tough!

This hike is so tough but fantastic.

Very difficult hike, especially due to up and down incline BOTH WAYS! If you are not in good shape, be careful. Take plenty of water and Gatorade, more than you would need, take snacks. Start early AM.

The way back is frikin killer. I forgot how much you go down on the way out. Beautiful summit!

Very challenging. Recommend poles and lots of water-at least 3L.

Feet are fresh from doing this hike.. It is a great workout.. The last part of the hike involves boulder scrambling and bushwhacking. Views were okay... Can’t emphasize enough on bringing enough water (atleast 3L) and food. It was really hot even at this time of the year(November). Took me 6hours including half an hour spent at the top. Overall a decent hike. Wouldn’t do it again since I wasn’t that impressed by the scenery...
