Get a map at the trail head. There are a lot of trails in the park and though they are marked, they can be confusing.

Took the longest route possible I think. Started at mission gorge and Jackson. Stayed west on the RIM trail then went to the Fortuna Saddle and to The South peak and down the stairs. Nice hike. My 5 yr old completed about 6.5 miles in a little over 3 hours. Saw 1 rattlesnake around 6pm- not a very hot evening either- keep your eyes open
