    Richard Nordhoff reviewed Mount Fuji (Fujisan) Yoshida Trail

    22 days ago

    Did a guided climb (MWR Atsugi) yesterday 24 Aug. Hike was 5th station to summit. Loved the climb and it was more challenging than I thought because of the elevation.
    My recommendation is to go as light as possible, and take trekking poles for the decent. The decent trail is like skidding down on moon dust with rocks. I did not have gaiters and dreadfully regretted not taking any.
    Got started at about 0700, summit at 1430, back at 5th station 1830.
    I want to come back for the sunrise hike another day.

    Nice, easy walk. It is paved or wood decking the entire trail. Views are limited to marshland. Recommend seeing it if you’re nearby.

    Kind of new at this so just echo most of the last few posts. Hiked on 10 Oct, less than a dozen or so folks on the trail. Very nice mid morning hike. Nothing special needed here this time of year other than water. Saw what seemed to be regulars fast pacing and jogging some sections without anything at all.

    The falls is worth the trip to see. The very first part on the switchback from the trail head is a bit misleading, it gets better quickly after you enter the canyon.

    Can't wait to bring family back here and will do it again just to show them.
