That actually sounds interesting but is the mountain really 7 miles tall ⁉

It is less than a mile high, but the trails wind around the mountain, as opposed to going straight up from the base.

If i were just one trail, straight up, one wold have to stop and rest before reaching the 1/4 mile mark, and doubtful one would ever reach the top, before collapsing.

Gotcha!

Wonder how long it would take to 🚶 up (or down) the mountain using this trail?

Interesting story. This mountain is more attractive at ever turn. I gotta check this place out!

Also, if this guy ran both ways in 2 hours surely it can be hiked in less then 7?
