I have done this hike twice and will for a third time in January 2018. This hike does kick you butt. There is no trail to follow, you walk through a lot of water and brush, lots of large step ups and a continually steep grade uphill. It takes about 6 hours give or take with a full backpack. That being said, it is worth it. This destination is amazing. There is a lot to explore and few people on the trail. Each time I have hiked it, I have run into 1 or 2 other groups on the 3 day trip. Camp at Chris Wicht camp the night before and get an early start. You should plan to move real slow the last mile, haha. I
