I had some pretty crappy weather on the way up...bad fog and rain showers, made it to the cabin in 2 hours 50min but I was pushing it....YOU IN NO WAY CAN TAKE THIS TRAIL AFTER DARK the trail is not clearly marked and it is nearly impossible to see anything when all the ground around you is black (even with a light). The next morning the weather was beautiful, the clouds had cleared and you could see all the way to the ocean, amazing trail.
I took this trail late March and it dropped below freezing at red cabin...
