Description

This is a long, strenuous hike that is beautiful the entire time. It takes anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5 hours to reach the summit. Half of the trails are wonderfully marked out and are pretty solid ground - the other half will leave you breathless and scrambling to continue. It does feel magical to be above the birds though.

First timers on this trail - what a beaut! Cooling down in the waterfall afterwards is a must. Luckily we got there early, so trail traffic was light. 7.2mi — 3h 30m

Bring more water than you think you need, especially in the summer.
