Bob says... "Not for beginners"... Bob will lead the group through the more rugged trail... a slightly challenging hike that at times might be moderate in pace. The terrain is certainly strenuous in places. We are going out on the blue trail but because the blue trail does not loop back to the parking lot we will head back on the orange trail (easier) unless time does not permit then we will take the purple trail.
Difficulty - Not for beginners, similar to the longer/higher section hikes. See photo there is a section that is fairly steep both up and down, we had to help people navigate one of the down portions.
Distance - about 5-6 miles - 3 to 4 hours of hiking with a rest at the tower for pictures and a snack, we will also have a few other lookouts where I am sure photo time will be needed and we will take our time through the rough patch assisting others when needed.
Please bring water, snacks, layers (not cotton) and a fanny pack/day pack/camel back for all of the above.
