Other than the length, this is on the low end of Moderate if you hike on even a semi regular basis. Be careful on the wet rocks. I can’t say a lot about the views on the way up as it was a very cloudy day. So most of the day, I had less than 100 feet visibility. I will say that the views at the summit are non-existent. I did come back down the Elk Garden Trail, which avoided some of the rocks and gave a slightly different view and included an open field with several ponies.
