I would rate this hike moderate as it is on a pretty steady incline the whole way up. The hike itself is not the most exciting but once you get to the top the views are amazing! We also got to see some mountain goats...More

Great views from the top and worth the walk to the cosmic ray station. Free parking at the gondola station. Wear comfortable shoes and take a coat as it can be very windy at the top.

Absolutely, you can buy one way down no problem. Can't remember the cost and take about 9 minutes with an option of a picture purchase, or essential and no hassle. Enjoy
