Completed the trail in clockwise direction with North Fortuna summit followed by South Fortuna summit. Going in the other direction requires ascending plenty of steep steps to reach South Fortuna summit. Even then, some sections of the hike were very challenging. Views from both summits were rewarding.

Great trail. One part of the trail is closed (last 0.5 miles)but we walked right through quickly. Didn’t see any snakes but should be careful regardless.

Open for everyone and sometimes packed. Good for training! . Some trails will say close and have another route you can take but eventually you end up in the trail that’s closed anyways lol. Nothing stops you from going through the “closed for construction” trail. Good luck! @trail_goat

Hiked both south and north summits today! Was a good hike all the way around the basin but man were those south summit steps difficult to get up I was out of breath!

Great trail for those who are looking for a good workout! The views were great at the top of the peaks which made all the challenging inclines/declines worth it!

First time doing this hike. It was absolutely beautiful but it is definitely more on the harder side as opposed to moderate. Hiking shoes are a must!!! The terrain is very rough in some areas. I seen many people wearing tennis shoes slip. Bring plenty of water because the distance is longer than this ap says. I tracked my distance from start to finish and it is 7.7 miles. No shade anywhere so wear sunscreen and a hat. WATCH OUT FOR RATTLE SNAKES!

great hike , lots of hills. starts relatively flat with a gradual increase in elevation. the hike to the summit is rocky and could almost be considered a scramble . beautiful hike !

Good trail it’s the back way so you have to cross over a bridge and there are a lot of redirection signs because of covid
