We will be hiking briskly, but stopping often to enjoy the views.  This is a very tough day hike, you must be in good condition and have recently done similar hikes.   

If you want to spend the weekend in the area, I will be leading an out and back along the Grand Ridge from Obstruction Point the day after this hike. This is another stunning hike!
