Recommend starting no later then 7am. I went through 4 liters of water and ran out half way back.

Completed 5/31/20. TONS of bugs. Got a few in my eyes and nose even with lots of bug spray reapplication. Most of the elevation gain is in the very beginning. Tough but not grueling. The rest is flat once you reach the top. The views in the north and south overlooks are both jaw-dropping. I would highly recommend taking the extra time and planning to do both. Lots of wildflowers, butterflies, lizards, birds. The scenery constantly changes as you make your way through. I started at 8am and the heat/sun wasn’t too bad until 12pm when I started to head back. I spent a lot of time exploring and enjoying the views at the top, causing me to run out of water (I had 3 liters). I would recommend bringing more water if you plan to stay long because the sun/heat is brutal in midday. Tldr; insane views, totally worth it, more long in duration than difficult in ascending, bring lots of water, bug spray, and sunscreen.

This was a great hike for us as relative beginners - a great mix of incline and flat all the way through to keep us challenged and beautiful views.

Got to the parking lot by 7am and got a spot in the overflow. Cathedral Rock was too steep for our big dog, so we ended up doing Templeton to the river. It was gorgeous and our dog and kids were in heaven. It’s so lush and green. We swam, found crawdads, and ate lunch. Also my husband lost his Apple Watch in the river, so keep your eyes peeled for it. Lol. On the way back my watch-less husband and 8 year old went up Cathedral while I hung back with the dog and lazy 6 year old they loved it!

The scenery is amazing. However, we don’t recommend this hike. 1. The AllTrails is inaccurate for this hike. A major part of the trail on AllTrails does not exist on site; the marked trail very clearly goes away from it. 2. Trail names and AllTrails trail names are inconsistent. 3. Trails are ambiguous and it is easy to take the wrong one if you are not constantly checking AllTrails as you go. 4. This hike is incredibly anticlimactic. It ends in the middle of a wash - nowhere. It really seems like a random point was picked. The trails keep going far beyond the AllTrails end point. Also, Weaver’s Needle is only very distantly visible on this trail, and only at one part of it. Beautiful region, but pick a different trail to do other than this “trail.”

This is a beautiful trail with amazing views from the top! However, as a semi-regular hiker, long distance runner, and military member I will tell you this hike was HARD! About half of it felt like rock climbing, and make sure you bring LOTS of water and some snacks because this will take you a while. Overall I really enjoyed this hike, but would probably only do it 1-2 times a year due to its difficulty. (Sidenote: I did this on a 116-degree on May 29 2020, but started at 0500am. I would suggest maybe even going earlier because although you are in shade almost the whole time, the way back can get a little toasty on your back!)

Live the views on this hike

Very pretty, great rock formations at the top. We took a few detours.

Good trail but not great. Maybe it was the heat (100F), but this seemed kind of boring. Saw some small lizards and views ok, but not spectacular. If you do the loop and want a more gradual climb to peak, go CCW. We did CW and it was steeper.

The first half of this trail was fairly easy to follow using rock cairns and a lot of fun to the top. The loop trail coming down was very poorly marked causing us to backtrack quite a few times. This trail is recommended for experienced hikers/climbers. Be sure to take plenty of snacks a water!

My friends and I decided to do the Romero Pools yesterday. I would recommend to do this early in the morning and to bring lots of water cause there was no shade. However arriving to the destination was totally worth it. The water felt really nice and it was still running and we had a great time overall.

Awesome hike.

done this trail a few times, its very rocky but should be easy enough for most kids, there are a few inclines, but a decent walk
