This was an amazing hike. Lots of beautiful energy in that mountain if you can be present for it. I went Saturday morning and arrived by 630 am-there were 2 other cars. Took me 4 hrs to summit and make back down... there were easily over 100 cars and no parking left. Get there early! Plus, if you get there early it feels like it's just you and the mountain. Lots of hummingbird and other bird activity. Excellent way to start the day.

Great views when you get to the top! I thought it was slightly more than moderate, only because of the elevation gain. Took my husband and I about 3 hours round trip. Well worth it!

did get a little nervous at the beginning of the hike because of the fresh bear poop right on the trail, but the park rangers said it's rare you'll see wildlife during the weekend because there is so much traffic. I think we saw one chipmunk and a mouse
