Miles: 8.4 If you Choose the old trail - new trail loop
A steep climb that makes you feel like your legs can't take anymore on the way up and destroys your knees on the way down. Worth it for the views and the satisfaction of saying you did it. Come in winter for a smaller crowd, but make sure you have the gear and experience for it.
A very steep climb to a not so worthy summit. Maybe it was the completely socked in day, or, maybe it was that I could tell the view wouldn't be comparable to other nearby climbs. Not even on a sunny summer day. Though getting to say you accomplished it is certainly something.
Miles: 8 Round Trip Elevation Gain: 3400 Ft A fairly steep hike with an excellent pay off. The first portion is a bit deceiving. Once you reach the upper portion you will get the leg burn you are, or maybe aren't, looking for.
