Holy crap, Thunderbolt Trail kicked my butt. The lower sections are sort of steep but the upper 1/3 is intensely steep. I suggest bringing hiking poles, coming down is really bad on your knees with no poles (I had no poles and my knees are very sore). Today was a 10/10 hiking day 70-75F with a nice breeze. It was in the high 60’s on the top.
