    Rocked out this hike yesterday 8/11. Awesome hike! Highly recommend camping at trailhead the night before. Actual parking lot was already full by 10pm! If you dont camp you still will want to get there as early as possible, Getting stuck parking down the road will just add miles to your already tough hike! Took our jetta almost all the way to the trailhead but theres one large bump that our car could not clear so we stopped and camped there. only a couple hundred feet from the parking lot. Hit the trail at 445am done at 1215p with breaks and summit stops. I believe doing Democrat first is by far the way to go. Not only do I think going up bross in the dark would be terrible. Having to go up Democrat last would be a tough climb after bagging the other 3. Also another reason would be that by the time u would get to the democrat climb it will be packed. By 10am there looked like there was a line all the way up democrat. Going down bross was def tough and took a lot of concentration watching where you step and keeping balance. Poles for sure a must. Not sure what my fav was. Being almost to the top of democrat for sunrise was amazing, but being atop bross and being able to see all of what you just did was awesome too! Bross' summit is huge but lincoln and democrat's a lot smaller. Took our dog whose used to hiking and is a larger dog. She was very tired at the end and I got a little worried about her paws coming down bross as it is very lose rock but she made it down without any cuts and passed out the whole way home.
    Overall amazing hike. Very fulfilling finishing all 4.

    Great hike on the 4th. Camped at Hoosier pass the night before but stayed up late and didnt get to the trailhead til 8am. Lot was full and had to park a hundred or so yards up the road. MUCH longer than what it says on here. Way longer than the 6miles it says on here. I know fitbits arent the most accurate but mine said round trip at just under 11miles. 5hours 40min to do the whole thing. False summits make it a little more intimidating towards the top and the last couple hundred feet are the hardest. 3.5hrs to summit, 2hrs down. Wouldnt want to start any later than we did as weather was starting to move in when we were at the bottom and felt a couple raindrops when we go to the car. Dog did fine but have to carry water for her as theres no streams or water along the hike. Top half is rocky and scree to the top. Pups paws were a lil chapped at the end but she made it fine.
