Loved this hike! Great steady hike up the mountain with plenty of shade. I hiked in early am so the first three quarters of the hike was in the shade with the mountains blocking the sun. Once I got past the bear canisters, majority was in the sun and the trail got a lot rockier. I was a little freaked out by all the warnings about the 25 ft scramble at the top...WAY over hyped. Not that challenging or intimidating and afforded breathtaking views. I can easily see why this is the top rated trail in the’s awesome!
