a must do hike. the only part i had a problem with is the last 3 miles that is all downhill. i have bad knees from college athletics and it really did a number on them. a hiking pole is highly recommended if you have less than perfect knees

Spectacular views over the whole trail and mountain goats with their kids from about half way out! Highly recommended!
