Northover Ridge is a long loop trail that should not be attempted by anyone who is less than an experienced hiker. There are some who will day-hike this in a very long, strenuous day, and others who take 3-5 days stopping at the backcountry campsites. Portions of the trail are un-maintained, requiring crawling under and over dead fall, short scrambles, loose scree, etc. If the weather co-operates, the views are amazing though, more than worth the effort if you are fit enough.

Life changing and absolutely amazing!
