I like this hike for so many reasons. I love the steepness of the trail. I love the peace and quiet that you'll find because not many people are hiking this trail, and there are spectacular views to see the whole time you are hiking it. It gives you a really good workout because this hike is very challenging, and I would definitely not bring a beginner on it. Wear good hiking shoes that have traction. I found that it really wasn't that hard to get up the steep slopes if you're wearing the right shoes. Make sure you have plenty of time to get down the mountain because you will need to go slower, due to the loose gravel and rock. The slope is pretty steep and it can be hard on your knees, but if you hike slowly, you should have no problem.
