Beautiful views of Two Medicine area along this trail. Trail is steep although the abundant switchbacks make it more accessible. My 74 year old dad managed it just fine. The day we went was extremely windy up on top which is not unusual but you need to be prepared for high wind gusts.
We did this as our first "getting adjusted to the elevation" hike (comming from East Coast) and it was perfect. Not very long, but with steep elevation and some grandeus views.
This hike was relatively tough because of the steep ascent up to the look-out. Be sure to stop preiodically and look at your progress, because the views are great. Once you get to the top you seem to be able to see across the country, looking out over the valley below. There are some cool old trees that you can't miss on the way up. Bring a lunch for the top of the lookout.
