    lwoodrum said: In my opinion this was a strenuously moderate hike. I thought the trail got pretty steep along the way. It's not excessively long so most probably think it is a moderate hike. The gazebo is interesting enough and the view is nice but not spectacular like Whiteside or anything. Mostly you can see the lake below and the mountains across the lake. I would say it is worth the hike, but fat people beware, your heart will pound getting to the gazebo.
