This is a beautiful and tiring hike, for an old guy like me. This trail is currently marked as easy and it may be, if you are in excellent physical condition. Those that are not, be prepared for a total ascent of over 1700 feet. The average casual hiker will likely find this trail to be moderate to difficult. However difficult one may find it, it is well worth the effort. The walk through McGurk can be filled with wild flowers and plenty of wildlife. Once at Dewey point, and beyond, the views are beyond beautiful. Spring and fall are the best times to do this trail. Summer can be brutally hot. Without doubt, one of my favorite Yosemite trails.

Loved walking through mcGuirk meadow and the view was pretty nice at Dewey Pt but I decided to turn around at that point

Last weekend I met two bears there. One was just beside the trail.
