We did this as our first 14er! Definitely recommend taking 2 cars and having someone park at the summit to drive you back down if you’re not used to log hikes. Towards the end the trail is nearly invisible and you must follow the cairns. Wonderful views! We did this with our two dogs, I would recommend not taking your pups on this one. At many points we had to hoist them up on rocks and then ourselves, which was extra draining.
