My friend and I started this trail at around 6:00am in the morning. It was a bit cloudy at the start of the trailhead but it cleared out at about a mile into the hike. I thought it was going to be cold but it got warm pretty quick. This trail was the shortest compared to the rest of the six peaks but it still took some time due to the steepness of it. It was a workout for sure. The trail wasn't too busy but as we got closer to the top there were people going down and a few others had passed us. We made it to the tower a bit before 11. I loved how you can see the San Francisco Peaks on one side and the city of Flagstaff on the other. We chatted with a few other hikers for a bit, took some pictures and called it a day.
