This was a great first 14’er hike because of its length. Hiked this trail in September of 2017. My dog and I took off up the trail at 5 am and reached the summit by 11:10am. We hung out for a bit and hiked back down. We booked it and got back to the trailhead at 1:20pm. Total distance was 22.7 miles. I would recommend to anyone who wants a good challenge. Extremely beautiful to see the landscape change throughout the 8500 feet of elevation gain.
