From the parking lot it is about a half mile walk to the summit. It took me about 20 minutes to get to the top from the car. As others have noted, the final section is exposed rock, but it is not as steep as they make it sound. There are plenty of steeper and rockier trails in the mountains of Maine and New Hampshire.

Red Tape: None. Stay on the trails to protect the area.
