Great hike! I did this one on Saturday 2/25/17. It is definitely not 12.6 miles, it's almost 16 miles roundtrip, maybe a tad less. It took about 5 hours to get up and 3 hours to get down. Started at about 8:30AM in the morning. Definitely a workout, great scenery, saw a couple deer on the nearby mountain. It was pretty satisfying, but the view wasn't as great because there was some clouds.
TOTAL TIME: 6-7 hrs Roundtrip. I just hiked this trail today and it was a pretty good leg workout. I suggest if you're gonna do this trail, don't go alone and ALWAYS start this trail in the morning. You don't want to end up running back alone in the dark like I had to. Goodluck :)

Awesome adventure.. loved it, beautiful scenery, take enough water to keep you hydrated..
Super Hard but the pay off view was worth it. 5 hrs to go up 3 hrs to come down. Full day!
After two miles, no one on the trail but me. Even on a holiday.
Awesome! just hard, but awesome
