It is a good day hike (doable for beginners) and I will rate it on a moderate side of difficult as some sections get steep...especially after the fork when you go towards Mt Jackson. Views from the top of Mt Jackson are spectacular as you see 4 other peaks (Pierce, Eisenhower, Monroe and Washington) in presidential range. Also towards west you can see Tom, Field and Willey. Beyond that you can see Twins mountains and Mt Lafayette in the very far. Mt. Webster's views are equally spectacular though not 360 deg. There is nice waterfall while coming down from Mt Webster to rest and enjoy. Do not forget to take small detours to Elephant' head and Bugle Cliff. View are well worth it.
