Over prepare, bring extra water- 2L+
This trail has some really fantastic views and is definitely worth your time. Keep in mind though that this trail is very steep in places and extremely rocky. Would be great for hiking but I ran it and it was pretty rough since it was so rocky. I can't even imagine trying to do this on a mountain bike, yikes. If you are going to run this just plan on a slow time and enjoy yourself, it is definitely a trail you should do if you live in the area. Check out Tom's Thumb as it is only a few tenths of a mile off the main loop. Take some extra water and some solid shoes and you will have fun on this one.
It was a good hike. Tough but so worth it!
I have done it twice. one of my favorite hike. make sure to go with friends, as you can get lost as not good direction.
My number one favorite trail in all time. Very easy for me, maybe because i went this place so many times.
I really like this trail. The hike is moderate. What makes it hard is the length of the hike if you're not in great shape. If you're in great shape it's a good workout.
