The first 1 mile and last 2 miles of this hike were brutally steep! Rest of it was a a gradual incline, and it was a beautiful day. The top was fully covered in clouds when we reached. Not a lot of views from the top, but a few spots on the way had nice views. Did it for the 2nd time, and it was still a tough one! Started at around 7am, and took 4 hours to complete. Had to park at the Foothills parking lot because the parking at the trailhead is limited. So that added another 1.5 miles to our total distance. Overall a great workout.
