Great hike. A bit difficult in places. Some exposure near the top. The views are amazing. Completed in 7 hours at the very slow pace.

It’s definitely an expert hike! Make sure you’ve got good footwear and possibly some hiking poles for the steep descent, definitely very helpful! Bug spray is a good one, we went on an overcast day and we were swarmed the higher we got. Beautiful views and definitely worth the 3-4 hike( in ).Make sure you make note of where you come out of the Forrest and begin your ascent, we lost the trail back through the Forrest and ended up getting lost on a big for longer then we’d like to admit.

Difficult to find the trailhead in the springtime/ when waters at the base are higher. Moderate to the treeline then difficult to the top.

Long slog up the ridge with rewarding views. One moderate section of scrambling at the crux with no real exposure just loose rock. No water past the swamp/pond at beginning of scramble.
