Not the most experienced hikers, so the trek back up was pretty rough. Worth the views. Try to avoid mid-day sun and bring lots of water. You’ll need it on the way back. Beautiful trail, just remember you’ll need to walk all the way back up to the top.....so be cautious not to tire yourself out on the way down!

I haven't hiked much and was looking for a challenge. This certainly was a challenge on the way back up. Had to take frequent breaks, but I made it.
