My friend and I arrived at the trail at 9:30a on a partly cloudy Saturday morning. The small parking lot was surprisingly unfilled, though it was well overfull when we returned at 1p.

Note: at least in the winter, the trail is in almost full shade for most of the morning. It can be quite chilly.

The grade is pretty sharp, most noticeably on the way down, which makes for slow going if you're overly cautious because of proneness to falling because you tend to stare off at the horizon instead of watching where you're stepping...If you've got a pole, it would make this a much quicker hike.

But the hike isn't bad at all. It's too bad this hike isn't more well known. The views from the top are stunning - I think the best you can find anywhere in the immediate area, whcih is saying a lot. I live in full view of this peak and this was my first time to the very top. It won't be my last. On second thought, I'm glad this isn't popular.
