It’s a long hike to the summit but short descent. Some parts of the trail are quite dense with lots of thorny bushes and stinging nettle so it’s best to wear long sleeves and pants. The weather is also unpredictable. From sunny to rainy to hailstones.
Otherwise, it’s a nice trail with a gentle climb.
