Walked 6.53 miles of this trail. However, do not recommend when it's very hot outside. I would suggest doing this hike during the winter months or before the sun comes up.

We rode our bikes up this mountain, getting off to push our bikes up towards the end. The path is quite steep and gravelly. It was a bit scary coming down the mountain as well. The heat and the humidity added to the effort. From...More
