My rating depends, of course, on what you are looking for. If it is a tough, physical climb ypu are looking for, this is it (climb to Nesmith Point). I went on a rainy day, and quite windy at the top. But because it is on the east side of the hill, and in trees, you don't get the full brunt of the weather. The trail was good, even though it had rained for 3 days prior. I can't really comment on the views -- there are a few spots which obviously are for views, but given the blowing fog/clouds, I never saw the view. It took me about 2.6 hours to get to the top, and a little less (2 hours) to get down.
