dogs on leash
cross country skiing
this is my first hike ever with 4 buddies, well, i started mountain biking in 2013 and it helped me a lot. i recommend this trail to beginners a good start. but after the hike, every muscle i used during that hike was so sore for 3 days, didnt take meds for the pain :-), just fluids and protein to fastly heal it. i rate this as beginners' ish trail. 5 stars from me because it is between easy and advanced hike.
oh my, i rode mtbike (and i ride still at this very moment) a lot this summer that really helped me did the loop last Saturday 15Oct2016. Started at 1145a and came back down to the parking lot around 600p because i was slow. with my two buddies who took care almost every step i make especially on those dangerous parts up to that chain grab all the way to the summit. wow, was awesome but so nervous until i landed that trail down the hill. scary folks for beginners like me, not recommended. you need to be fit (if tired, take a rest, you need this), of course food and water, and focused whilst doing these top trails up to the summit but for intermediate plus hikers? oh yeah it is going to be fun and they know what to do. be careful up there! 4 stars from me, difficult.
