Awesome hike! It was actually “easier” on the way up, than the way down. We are used to hiking 13ers in Colorado, though, so it might be more difficult if you are not in decent shape. Make sure you bring shoes with good traction, because it’s very slippery (mud and loose rocks) in certain places. We both had running shoes, and that was a mistake. Took about 1.25 hours to get down, and 2 hours to get back up. Start early and bring plenty of water!
