Epic hike with amazing views and tons of places to camp. The trail can be a little tricky towards the end as it washes out. Kinda just becomes a rock scramble free for all. Lots of cool spots to chill, and plenty of mini peaks to bag. Would be a great place to do some orienteering as well. I will definitely be back to this one.
