Features plenty of switchbacks and the elevation changes are significant. You really have to do this hike before august if you want water. Once the snow melts the water is gone. Definitely recommend doing the full loop through to the brown trail so you can see all of St George.
The golden time to do this hike is from late May to mid July. Once you actually reach the whipple meadow be prepared for tons of water. Bring a pair of sandals and keep your boots dry or neoprene socks if you don't mind the water.
