Like a few reported on alltrails.com, there were three or four spots where gnats were annoying – but not enough to detract from the hike.

Honestly, I started out early to avoid the heat, but it actually wasn't too bad! There was a solid breeze on my return trip, so I think I actually could have started later. It was a nice solo hike (my first one in this challenge!). I was extremely impressed with how quickly I finished the peak – just under 4 hours, clocking in at 3 hours 55 minutes.

Once at the peak, I attempted to climb to get a picture of the geomarker, but I got to the top of the ladder and chickened out.

Overall, this is an absolutely beautiful hike!
