Just got back from this hike. Worth every ankle busting, hamstring flexing, quad building step! The view is incredible!
The whole hike up is pretty much an incline and mostly made up of switch backs, you'll be feeling it in your thighs halfway through but keep going. The hike down will be rough on the ankles. My legs are pretty much jelly fish right now. Its closer to 10 miles total.
The scenery goes from okay to great. The fire took out a lot of trees and early on you may find it discouraging but if you keep going it gets a lot greener.
You'll feel a sense of pride when you've made it.
