Beautiful hike with a challenging but manageable incline. We went after it rained and the scenery couldn't be more gorgeous. I highly recommend wearing hiking boots with good traction and bringing walking sticks! I fell in the mud a few times as the ground was very slippery. Can't wait to go back for more!
One of the most satisfying and beautiful views ever!
love,love this hike close to home with a beautiful view
love this place it's so beautiful especially when it rains or its cloudy.
This trail is nothing but "moderate" it is hard!!! Beautiful but hard.
We suggest do the loop counter-clock-wise, so the climb is easier and gradual.
Start the day as early as you can when it it still cool. We did it in late August, started at 7am, by 9 we were really hot. The whole trail took us 3.5 hrs walk, with some breaks and many water stops.
Obviously water, hats, good walking shoes are a must. Walking polls can really help too especially on the steep portions of the trail - and there are many...
There are many short cuts along this trail, we suggest not to take them. Stay on the main trail as Snakes are abundant in the summer, especially rattle snakes.
All in all this was a very good experience, and the view is breathtaking, especially from the look out point all the way to the top. Don't miss it.
Great Hike Up To The Bench,, I love this place :)
