    This is a challenging trail. If you want to go all the way to the top, there are a few considerations. First, during monsoon season, they get precipitation and thunderstorms on almost a daily basis during active moisture surges. You will want to check the weather forecast, and if there is precipitation in the forecast, it would be a good idea to start very early and try to be off of the trail by early afternoon at the latest. If you hear thunder, best not to proceed to the top, it's not worth the risk. There are a lot of rocks and exposed tree roots, positing a fall hazard, as well as being hard on your ankles, knees, and other joints, especially going down; therefore, stretch, take your time, watch the surface, and wear adequate footwear. The altitude can make you sick if you're not prepared, so it's a good idea to maybe spend a day or two getting adjusted to the altitude if you're not used to hiking altitudes like this. Finally, don't neglect sunscreen, and pack plenty of water and high caloric snacks (I used over 80 ounces last hike). The view at the top is completely worth the climb, but far too many people are unprepared or end up injuring themselves.
