This trail is recommend only for experienced hikers. It's best if it hasn't rained for a week, and to hike on a sunny day. Get started early in the morning. Wear a pair of hiking boots with great traction. Bring three bottles of water, dress in layers, bring a jacket, a mylar blanket, band-aids, and have a strong LED flashlight.

Very windy at the top with little to no visual when we went, but still a great hike. Definitely bring yourself lots of water! Due to the traffic coming up (as we were trying to go down) and grounds being wet, took profanity back down to attempt and bypass some people and to be more covered from the winds.

Love this hike. Have done it twice. Bring lots of water. First time I did it with my husband and we went at a pretty good clip. Felt very accomplished when done and views are outstanding. Coming back was harder than going up as our knees were grumbling we are both over 50).

Second time did it with a bunch of girlfriends and it was wet and super foggy. Two girls turned around early on. The rest of us turned around probably less than halfway in. Must have good hiking shoes. Ideally you want boots as your ankles will be screaming at you on the way back.

Go but be prepared. You want hiking boots, water, something warm for up top plus a snack.

Very tough hike! Definitely a difficult rating, parts of Hike were rock climbing along cliff edge. It is all up hill and then all downhill on return trip. We went up Long trail to summit, then came down on Profanity trail. Profanity trail is very steep but much more protected than Longs.
