    The 3.1 mile hike is a very difficult all uphill climb to the summit of the rock, except for a very short hike down to the rock face.

    My son and I hiked to the summit in January(2013), when the temperature was approximately 19 degrees. We completed the 6.2 mile round trip hike in a little over 3 hours.

    My Suggestions to prepare for this hike are: Wear comfortable hiking shoes, take bottled water, and snacks can help boost your energy level. A walking stick is also helpful to maintain balance. My Verizion wireless cellphone had a signal the whole way.(Could have been a lifesaver in case of an emergency.) This hike was one of the best I have every took. The view at the summit is Awesome.
