Very beautiful, but long. especially on a hot day. I hiked it yesterday w a friend and it was in the high 80s which was foolish on our part. We each brought plenty of water, but still ran out and the watering hole at the end was dry as a bone which was so disappointing especially being out of water. I don't know if i need to do this again until spring at least. Early spring when it's in the 70s!!!! Beware.
