March 19th. 1hr 31mins up & 1hr 17mins down. Tough hike that isn't crowded. Apple Watch calculated about 7 miles.
Strenuous but beautiful.
Warm & beautiful day to hike today. Fresh air.
A good work out! You can stop at the top of Jones or keep going to continue on to much longer trails. I was moving at a decent speed at it took me 3 hours to finish.
Well maintained trail with decent views of the surrounding area. It'll be hard mostly because of the many switchbacks that keep going up. I think most should be able to do it if you take your time. It only took me a hour and a half to make it to the peak with a few water/picture breaks. But, I do a decent amount of hiking so I'm not the average person. Coming down was a lot quicker. Don't forget the sun screen. There are a few shaded spots, but they are far a few in between.
