A Reviewer on the Hike:
Awesome hike! My first time there today and absolutely loved it. Please make sure to get the adventure pass at Jensens (small town about 8 miles down) or REI before coming up. The trail was easy to follow and very rocky. There were definitely some areas where we had to slow down and watch our steps, but I do think it's manageable as long as you don't look down. Id say there are about 4-5 of these areas and they're fairly small. Please be careful on the trail as its full of rocks and it's easy to roll ankles! A must do!
