Always a great day, the trail is narrow and has some damage from the rains. Beware there are Mt.. Bikes and runners on the trail all day. Our goal was to make it to Inspiration Point but came up short..but it was still great hike. Will be back to work on completing this hike.

First time hiking this trail yesterday and it's longer than 5.5 miles, my fitbit recorded 7.2 miles out and back. But the hike is amazing! Would definitely do this one again!
