This trail has sections with steep-sloped forest and scree. It's best suited for the experienced hiker who is comfortable with a few surprises along the way. I have not hiked it myself, so we'll be exploring it together. The goal is to stay safe, have fun, and enjoy spectacular views from the top. Please read the full WTA writeup at:
