7:15am at the trailhead. Early time needed since this is a very popular hike even on a Friday. Also if we start early we can end early to be done hiking before or around the heat of the day.

Out and back hike to the Kendall Katwalk and back. The Kendall Kat walk is the only part of the PCT trail that had to be blasted out of a mountainside. It is just so beautiful!
