I am new to hiking and out of shape. this trail is an awesome workout for those like myself. I had to rest a minute 2 times, but I did do the whole thing. I am someone who pushes through so I wanted to complete it, but I wouldn't recommend this to all 46 year old, out of shapers :) We will be back though, we loved it!
