Get a map at the trail head. There are a lot of trails in the park and though they are marked, they can be confusing.
Good long hike. Loved the stairs!
My wife and I are over 70 and it was all we could handle.
Nice hike. Not too busy. The river is still flowing pretty strong. At the shallowest point to cross it's still 5 or 6 inches deep of running water. So plan accordingly.
Very nice hikes, started at 6:00 am and did South and North Fortuna. I would recommend to do them together, beautiful views from either one.
