You must be in excellent condition for this trip. Pace will not be fast - there is a lot of up and down but we will try to maintain 2 mph with brief stops. Expect a very long day with a very early start at dawn from the Sunrise Visitor Center parking lot. Consider camping at White River campground the night before trip. We may be hiking out after dark.

Mileage and elevation gain are estimates only, could be more or less than stated.
