    Jim, I won't be able to make it on time as I got home around 5:30.

    Liwen, two comments.
    1) total elevation gain is around 450 feet
    2) while the write-up says 6 miles, the actual distance will be between 4 and 5 miles because of the early sunset this time of year. I'll try to get us back right at (or a bit after) sunset.

      Jim, Sorry, on my mobile. I should be able to handle it with only 450' of elevation. 5:30 would be rush for me but would try to make it. THANKS!

    Hi, novice hiker. So is this an easy hike?

    October 15, 2012

      No, it is not easy because it has some hills but it is not too tough. I'd call it easy intermediate. An easy hike would not be 6 miles.
