19.5 miles by our gps. Very beautiful and awesome hike but be warned This time of year in mid July the mosquitos and gnats were horrendous, swarms even followed us up the snowfields on mount Daniel, so be prepared because every bug repellent failed except putting on more clothing. If your an average hiker/climber this is comfortably a 3 day 2 night trek. We were pushed for time and did it in 2 days but paid for it in very sore bodies. (Or packs we 50lb with heavy climbing gear though). Once you get to cathedral rock be prepared for many many trail intersections that can lead you astray from where your goal route is.
