This is a strenuous one day hike. The first ascension is the most difficult. The view of Half Dome and the Yosemite valley from Clouds Rest is breath taking. The trail goes through a variety of landscapes. Part of the John Muir trail was burnt in a wild fire but it's still interesting to see how resilient mother nature is. There are some streams to get fresh water along the way. The temperatures in October are already pretty cool, especially when it’s windy. Make sure to pack up extra layers.
