I enjoyed this trail. It doesnt have any real spectacular views until you get to the top, but the view there is amazing when the clouds break. I have read reviews posted here and elsewhere, and did not find the trail to be as difficult as people describe. Yes, there are a lot of switchbacks and no level ground, but the trail is not as steep as I thought it would be. I was up and down in 4 hrs including a nice break at the top. On my way down I even ran into a couple hiking up with a baby on board, so that should tell you it really isn't too strenuous. The trail was well established, with no washouts, and it is really more of a loop than an out and back if you take the summit loop, which I highly recommend.
trail was hard it took two girl with me it took 4 hours to the top and 2 down. not for newbs
