Either it dint seem like 7 miles or I didnt do the whole trail. Parked at the bottom of the trail of 6th and walked toward the tree line. Was pretty steep at times, had a couple set of switchbacks which winded me quite a bit. Gorgeous views. Went all the way up to Windy Saddle then turned around. The map at the top states its 2.5 miles from 6th to their so I have it as a 5 mile round trip. Took me about an hr and 40 minutes to go up the trail and about 45 minutes to go down.

A great trail with a gradual ascent. The view from the summit is totally worth it. Can be a good evening/after work hike

Solid mountain biking trail. People should expect bikers..this trail literally goes right into a hiker only trail. Instead of down-voting a trail because of the inevitable, maybe do some research if you hate bikers that much.

I'm not sure I did the whole hike because it didn't seem like seven miles. the part I did was a challenge yet beautiful. I went at the right time since there were not a ton of bikers. the parking lot part way up look out mountain was very small and I was lucky to find a spot.
