I love how a 282 Mile long hike gets condensed into 3.9 Mile loop that includes the Profanity trail poor weather bypass. Regardless this is a great hike if you like constant elevation change. There may be 300feet of flat section throughout the whole trail. The last 0.3 miles is consistently a class 1 or 2 scramble. I would only bring one water bottle as taft lodge is only 0.6 miles from the top and theres a stream along the vast majority of the rest of the trail. Even at the top theres bound to be a few puddle from cloud moisture or rain. The views are amazing if you grt lucky with little clouds. Dont be fooled if at the base its clear doesnt mean the peaks going to be just as nice.

This is a difficult trail at times - very steep and near the edges of cliffs (small footing at times) but a great hike! Take water and snacks, you may need more than what you think.

Very challenging but beautiful trail. It is worth the effort.

Great hike! My wife and I did this yesterday. Very challenging near the top definitely not for the inexperienced hiker.
