I really liked this hike and would do it again. The trail was fairly easy and well maintained. The view at the top was nice.

This hike was a little to crowded for us, we like more solitude while hiking. Must have crossed over 50-people.

I don't see why not. As the others pointed out, dress in layers. It was a bit rainy and overcast when I went but it really gave the hike a very cool misty feel. I would definitely avoid ice! Have fun!
