Bring plenty of water with you as there is none on the trail. Blue and white markers help with navigating.

Difficult hike but worth it. 86 degrees today and the weather was perfect! Started around 10am and took us about 5 hours including the 30 minute break at the top. Definitely wouldn't do this in the summer time. Oh and there were tons of wasps everywhere which made it not as enjoyable.

Difficult hike, but worth it! Make sure you go on a cool day and be prepared for lots of bouldering/scrambling.

Really enjoyed this trail! We got off trail once but wasn’t too bad getting back. Great views and a fun area to explore. Bring lots of water.

Great hike. Just have plenty of water. It's a fairly long hike for ppl that don't hike often since the incline is pretty steep.
Don't be a tourist and do this in summertime!!!!

One of the hardest hikes in the valley. I've hiked it 5 times and the view is always amazing but be prepared for a 3 hour + hike round trip.

Not for the beginner. You will use your hands at times. 1st half is gentle, then 2nd half is challenging after Syphon Draw. The amazing view will be worth the 2 hour strenuous climb! Loved it.

Life changing, and worth the workout! Views unlike any other. Clear, crisp, cool air at the top. Only a few shady zones that are fun to spend the day at. Great people up there too

Challenging yet rewarding trail. Stay to the left after the basin during the ascent. Look for white or blue paint to mark the trail. My wife and I made the summit in approximately 3 hrs from the parking lot.
