Length: 4.8 mi • Est. 1 h 29 m
Note: the last half mile is all rock and ledge which makes it closer to hard than moderate. It is also all uphill - much of it steep. Finally, if you do take the cave option to reach the top please know that it is very difficult to get in and out of the cave and scale the rock to the top.Show more
