This will be an all day event(ETA back to P&R 5pm ish). You will sweat!!!! It has great views at the top. We WILL go to the top
The pace will be moderate and no one gets left behind. Anyone that has gone out with me knows I pace things so that all can enjoy and we do make stops along the way to the top. Just not snails pace. If you're slow as a snail save it for a beginner event. This is a gradual climb along a road until the actual trail head then things get interesting heading through the woods and passing wide open areas with some good views along the way.
We meet early due to the drive getting there being roughly 2hrs which will put us at the TH by 9:00.
