Start on the Caps Ridge Trail. Follow the Gulfside Trail to get to Adams. On my way back use The Cornice to reach Castle Trail.

Pretty frequent hiker, but this one was really tough. Not sure how AllTrails measures this at 9.2. Our GPS was over 13. Really enjoyed Jefferson and Adams, but the return route along the Cornice, over Castle, and back to Caps Ridge vis the Link was really tough. Lots of hands needed to pull up/drop down some tough rocks. Saw no one on this return route, so wondering if they knew something we didn’t. We thought it would wrap around without resummitting Jefferson, but I can’t recommend this route. In retrospect, we would have come back the same way. Jefferson and Adams were great views and well worth it though.
