Very wet and tons of loose rocks making it dangerous. Wouldn't recommend this one. Jews are totally obstructed.

very difficult hike but rewarding and enjoyable, do not attempt in the snow unless you are well prepared and well acclimated for the journey ahead, if youve done devils path, you can tell anyone on any other trail that youve slayed the beast! not for beginners. great day trip

This was a challenging hike (i don't know about the hard rating)- there were definitely some steep sections but they were short. I started up jimmy Dolan notch trail and came down the other side - this was nice because it was steep going up, but by the end there was a nice flat section leading back to the trail head. I will agree with others that it got very buggy, especially closer to the top, but nothing unbearable.
