The full trail is more than 9 miles (There and back) and gains over 3000 feet. An easy hike for peak baggers but a long day for a casual hiker. There is a sign which points to the parking lot on the left and the trail is very easy to follow all the way. If you plan to summit bring supplies for 5 -7 hours. This means all your 10 essentials, water (couple liters), food, footwear (not flops), first aid and a good attitude. If you have a dog follow the rules and keep it on the leash. The trail has a 6 foot leash rule but 5 out 6 dogs I saw were not leashed. Sorry, but your pet is not above the rules. The trail can be very busy on the weekend but if you get an early start you'll be out in front. In the summer you'll need to start very early and be off the summit by noon because of thunder storms.
