This is definitely one of the hardest trails I have done. My adcice woyld be to make sure you go prepared in comfortable shoes and have water. you will not get much reception there. elevation drops qyickly. pay attention to the white diamonds on the trees that show you the path to go. absolutely beautiful.

awesome scenery and views. trail was well marked and easy to follow. the climb in and out of the canyon was the most difficult part of the trail.I would only do this trail when it's been dry for a while as the rocks will be very slippery when there's been rain. It took about two and a half hours.

I would have to say this hike was a little difficult due to the very slick rocks in the bottom canyon. Decided to turn back. Wasn't interested in any bumps, bruises, or broken bones.
