An absolutely stunning hike ! This is a truly difficult straight uphill trail, and because of high elevation it is extra difficult! You need to get a permit at the campsite (the office opens at 7am.) We've started hiking 7:20 and it was very cold - Windy Gap at around 3.5miles is REALLY windy and freezing so have extra layers ready! Our walking time was 5 hours but it took us 6,5 hours to get back... take enough water, snacks and clothes - it's a very serene and gorgeous hike !
