I had the most miserable hike that I've ever had on this trail (or half a hike, since I turned around halfway out). I didn't know that there were that many mosquitoes in the entire world! The mosquitoes on this trail are not only numerous, but highly intelligent. They quickly figured out that it isn't possible to spray mosquito repellent around your eyes, so I now have a ring of mosquito bites around my eyes. My upper back is also covered with mosquito bites even though I was wearing a shirt. If you want to hike this trail, do it in January.
