This trail is no joke. Lots of ups and downs and technical in spots. My legs are definitely feeling it now. Keep a close eye on the markets because it's easy to get turned around. Also, there's no official "end", as in a proper peak, so mark your distance. We got to mile 6 and turned back around. Did 11.6 miles total.

Grueling hills, make sure you bring enough water and elecrolytes if you intend to do the full loop.

Done this hike many times. A beautiful hike, a moderately steep climb with some nice flats and down hill breaks. Pretty crowed but not too bad. Takes only a couple hours max and is well worth it.
