This is a strenuous hike with a constant uphill climb until you reach the summit. The elevation gain is 2100 ft. This is an out-and-back hike. The trail is a well maintained gravel base until the last half mile. From this point the trail is hard pack dirt and rocky.
This hike is not for beginners. Finding a parking spot usually takes 20-30 minutes. Plan accordingly.
