Decent view from the peak that could be a stunning view if the tops of a few trees were taken off. It was probably a lot better view 5 years ago.

Once you get up there however there is still some rock hopping and cllimbing around for the really good views. What I'm saying is, it might be hard for your 90 year old mother. I have heard of people hiking up and then being shocked...More
