Medium difficulty. Very nice views from the top of the peak. It takes around 3h to reach it. Totally worth it.

This is a great hike and not all that difficult at 2914M. The views are great and as for the flowers (end of june) were amazing.

The parking lot is narrow and small. There are many crowds. There is a wonderful view from above. The air is very clean. Not very steep.
