This was my fist real mountain hike. For a beginner, it was a tough climb, but the view at the top is worth it. The trek down was much more taxing after the 3mi climb. On a Saturday during the summer, there were quite a few other hikers, and several dogs, but it did not feel crowded. I really enjoyed the technical aspect of this trail, there are many large rocks to traverse, more of the trail is like this rather than flat.
