We hiked this trail between the evening of Sat. Aug 10- Sun. Aug 11. We followed the instructions in Gerard Bonfils review (below) and everything was as described - thank you Gerard. The overgrown parts of the trail are still easy to follow so that wasn't a problem. We hiked in approximately two miles on Saturday in very foggy conditions and found a place to camp among wildflowers. The site was on an incline though, not many flat spots since you're hiking on the ridge. We woke up Sunday with still very low visibility due to low hanging clouds, but they burned off in the afternoon to great views! We hiked the rest of the trail in day packs leaving our other gear at our site, and picked it up on the way out. We encountered only one other pair (bikers) over 24 weekend hours. No water access that we found, so pack everything you'll need to drink/cook if you're staying overnight. Definitely worth it and loved the solitude, we will want to do it again when there is more visibility!
