There are ways to go to the summit, there is an easy way and a hard way. We decided to take the hard way. For most of the way it really wasn't hard, but we were surprised to come to a spot where you hard to hold onto a rope and pull yourself up a steep piece of rock. It wasn't a big deal for my husband, but I thought it was scary, not really that hard, just scary. The views at the summit are so worth it, very beautiful. We took the easy back down the mountain, which was a little longer and for a little bit, you walk along side a pond.
