The easy way to get to the top of the mountain is to take the bus and then the cable car, which is a half hour walk up from the bus stop. Arrive early to avoid huge crowds along the way and at the top. There are several paths to walk around the top to enjoy the views--if the mountain isn't in the clouds. As with most mountaintops, the views are awesome, even with some clouds. Walking down the path to the parking lot, you can enjoy the changes in types of trees. It takes 1.5 to 2 hours.
