I thought the hike was great, took 3 1/2 up and 2 1/2 down. My heart was really pounding toward the top. Every few steps I needed to rest for a bit. Lots of volcanic dust to breath - but the view from the top was really dramatic. Also right above the tree line the landscape looks like a japanese garden. I guess this type of geology gave them the inspiration.
