dogs on leash
This trail was a little more strenuous than I expected it to be. Not from the area but frequent it often and never really considered myself out of shape or a flat lander but I was really out of breath on this hike and had to take frequent breaks. At the top I found out it was all worth it though. Such an amazing view. Feels like you're on top of the world!
So rainy that day but still a very cool hike. Some people mentioned that this trail wasn't marked well but it was for us. It did look like someone had come through with a gator and cleared a lot of it. The last bit to the lakes is a little more tech and not marked as well. But not terrible. Def take bear spray. Once we got to the lake we heard a pretty intense animal "voice". I assume it was a bear because I don't know what else would have made that noise. Either way it was intimidating.
