Can only talk about our experience...but we have been looking to be able to get out and hike on our own (no guides, no tours) and FINALLY we found it!
Took the public bus there and back for 15,000 dong (i think) each way. 10,000 per person for the entrance fee and we were off, no one trying to sell us anything.
We walked for about an hour up the steep paved road which was empty save for the green jeeps carrying tourists that came roaring by. There was a little shack with a map and trail head off the right, leading up to the left peak and we took that trail. If we continued on the road, we would have made it to the radio tower peak, where the jeeps and motobikes will also bring you.
Great to be off the road, in pine trees (!), and finally after a slog up some check steps that seemed to go straight up the mtn. we made it to the top!
Beautiful scenery and hike, and completely worth it, even if you're dead tired. Great way to get away from the haggling and traffic and enjoy local scenery on your own.
I did it in Chacos which was fine, although it's a bit slippery depending on conditions.
I would not reccommend the trail if it's been raining that day. Bring water and a snack!
