This was a very enjoyable hike! I went south from the hwy 74 parking lot to table top mountain. It was not a strenuous hike, the biggest workout being from mile 148 up the hill on the way back northbound. That portion is relatively short though so shouldn't present a problem. There are great views southbound after you round lookout mountain shortly after starting the hike (approx 1km into the hike).

Many PCTers know this already but if you are coming off of the south trail, the "continuing" trail to the north has been closed. There are signs at the head of the trail saying 10-12 miles in its closed off due to a fire. Since most folks hiking the pct are going down the road (left out of the south trail) to the dinner about a half a mile they will find out the new entrance to the north trail is about 3-4 miles down the road. Just a heads up for anyone trying to hike this section of the PCT. Happy hiking!
