This trail should really be marked as Difficult. the elevation gain and length make this hike a real burner. not only do you hike up the mountain, but then you hike down the mountain to flora lake - and the you turn around and hike back up the mountain again. kind of a double whammy.
amazing hike though, beautiful views most of the way. It took me and and avid hiker friend 6 hours to complete (and we hauled ass the whole way and only breaked at flora for 30 minutes) if you are a slower or less aggressive hiker, I would anticipate closer to 8 hours.
