Took 4 people in Polaris Ranger. Great day trip. Went in early July 5 years ago. Preparing to take friends again very soon.

Not too bad of a trail. Doesn’t look like it is hiked very much and isn’t kept up. It will however kick your ass. I hike a few times a month and I couldn’t walk right for 2 days after tackling this beast.
