What a killer hike. Went on Saturday before the rain could hit. A beautiful view at the top.

I really appreciated everyone's reviews before I took on this hike. They are accurate when saying this is tough and you have to start early. I know a few people that have done the complete trail in 6-9hrs, but if you're like me, and you like to stop for pictures, and food, expect to take anywhere from 10-12hrs. The first 4000ft. are tough, but the last 3000+ ft before you get to long valley are sooo much more tough. This is not for the faint of heart, or people that are not willing to climb a few boulders haha. I stopped at the tram station because it was cold and rainy, and I left my rain poncho at home that day, but I still feel victorious. I've done the hike to the summit a few times from the tram so I can say this... The last 2000ft to the summit are bearable and most enjoyable, especially if you take a little pause at Wellman's Divide for pictures and a little snack.
There's nothing like that feeling of accomplishment when you've reached your destination, no matter how hard the journey is.

Can't wait to do this again!

If anyone was there between the hours of 3:30-4:30 on 9/10 I want to know if you made it out alive? The flash flooding washed out the trail for my 16 y/o nephew, baby brother, and I. We barely made it out, one of the scariest most intense things I've done thus far!!! The legend of Tahquitz is real, and he did not want us there!!!
