Bill and I hiked this after our friends John and Sarah headed back home. They both talked about the trail a lot with kept my mind fixated on it. Since we took an additional day off, we decided we would try this much feared and much anticipated trail. We knew it was quite exposed and it included some non-technical climbing, for example ladders or rungs. There are plenty of warnings leading up to the trail as this path has higher risks involved than other trails. It did not look like it would rain or have lightning so we figured getting struck was not a worry. We only had ourselves to worry about now.
For this page we have photos of the trail in order of what we did and saw to provide a better idea on the exposure and the climbing parts of the trail. It is not a trail where it is packed with pretty flowers or wildlife and waterfalls that makes this one interesting - it is the path itself. On a busy weekend the lines of people heading up this path is visible from the road as well as other trails in the area and may take a little patience with others. A few of the sections are thought provoking. I felt pretty good after having hiked this path and really enjoyed my time on it.
