If you decide to do this route, we entered from the bear gulch cave entrance. We came from Fresno so we took the 125 to the 25 and entered there. If you’re like me, I did the trail clockwise to get the hardest part over. Bring flashlights for the cave!! I thought it was pretty cool and neat!! The advisors recommended it was easier to go up the “steep and narrows” trail than to go down. Other than that we had a blast. It took us 4.5hr max! We didn’t see any condors at all but overall it was well worth the challenge! After the high peaks and steep and narrow, it’s mostly down hill from there so bring knee wraps if you have knee issues. It’s considered modern but has some hard impacts going downhill. Good luck and have fun!!!
