Beautiful route.
The climbing makes it tough, but it’s worth it for the views/nature.

This hike was hard but so much worth it. Had to do scrabbling lots of times and some areas were expose but the views made it all worth it. Had 2 ladders to climb up to get all the way to the cable cars but were ok for me since not as expose. Also had the trail for myself most of the way since only saw 5 hikers and 3 rangers the 5 hrs I was in the trial. Need to know your way around because most part not identify and can get confusing in the section where it is all rock climbing, so go with a guide ( I did) if not familiarize with it. The guide can also take your pics!!

Beautiful,isolated and challenging. All the important factors for a good hike

Stunning views! Restaurant at starting point. Well kept trails. Different options to choose from. Definitely worth it.

Awesome trail! Beware...if you follow this route turn by turn, there is a ton of rock climbing up some slippery paths. Be sure to wear waterproof shoes, as there are some soggy spots. We took the cable car down the other side. Overall pretty demanding trail but the views are worth it!

Take the time to hike along the reservoirs as well !
