    Good quicker elevation gain workout. Nice vistas as long as you like seeing city and mining operations also. Time is closer to 2.5-3 hours. We do 6-15 mile hikes with 1500-3500' elevation gains regularly, did it in 75 degrees starting in the sun, transitioning to overcast and sprinkles for the last 1.5 miles, passing several groups and not being passed by any. There are a lot of sections with large steps so small kids will be taxed. ★ ★ ★ ★
