    By no means is this an easy trail. Your first 2.5 miles is deceitful, it’s a nice leisure stroll through the forest with mild incline. Then you get to the boulders where you can let your inner rock climber out and lose your breath or balance quickly. The ash at the top is no freaking joke feels like you take two steps up and 12 back but if you got the determination you can do this hike. Took us 9.5 hours round trip. Recommend gloves for the rocks hiking poles are a must if u would like to make the ash vertical climb easier on yourself. Bring lots of snacks and water. Stick to the markers because it is usually the easiest safest route even though below may look easier.
