Fabulous trail! Challenging and scenic. The trail is in the shade in the morning which staved off the heat until later. We started this him at 6am and spent most of the at up in the shade. About half as much on the way down.

I'm a newbie having only hiked 4 times in a month and this was very challenging for me. But dang that scenery. Only did 1.6 miles. That massive chasm with those huge boulders all collected at the bottom, man.

Spent 4.5 hours hiking. Wanted to hike to the end of finger rock trail but my hiking partner's knees were taking some abuse. We left at 8 am and the hike in was mostly shaded by the high ridges on our right. As you near the top the trail narrows and it gets thick with trees and shrubs. It was very windy and cool for much of the hike. Coming down the trail can definitely be hard on the knees. Great hike and hope to do it again soon and hike the entire trail. We've seen a Gila monster and a mountain goat in our last two hikes. As you hike in further it gets less busy. Of course bring water!

By far the hardest hike, not so bad going up, coming down was the hard part!!

We hiked two hours up to the saddle, it was an aggressive hike but worth it. The views are gorgeous. We were told by other hikers we were about an hour and a half from the trail end. It is a beautiful hike and moderately populated with people.

Difficult to make it to Mt. Kimball and I'm in decent shape, especially when it's warm but the views are stunning.
