Kind of terrain
The path goes through the forest of mostly blue pine. The climb is all uphill and the path is mostly stoney. The trail is not very big but big enough in most places for two people to walk side by side. In one place the climb is really steep.
Best time to visit
This is a short hike so it can be done all year round. This is one full day hike. During rainy season the path gets little slippery but it is still manageable.
