Beautiful view, beautiful and rare flowers, spectacular scenery. Can be bit difficult for non hikers, slow and steady will bring you to the top.

Their are a lot of beautiful sights all your hike in this trail. I would recommend to wear good tracked shoes. I would recommend to wear a sweater on a chilly day, which you can take off if you get too warm.

This is a well maintained trail that is in the forest most of the time. You definitely get a workout, especially the last half mile. When we reached the summit it was in clouds but we ate our lunch and waited and watched the clouds...More
