Meet me for a little workout before the day starts. We will be doing this peak twice in succession. Some stats:
Distance Round Trip for 1 pass: 2.4 miles, so total will be 4.8 miles
Elevation Gain for 1 pass: 1,180 feet, so total will be 2360 ft
Avg Time Round Trip for 1 pass: 1.5 hours, so total will be 3 hours.

I hike about 2 to 2.5 miles/hr and I don't take a lot of breaks on this trail. The parking lot will be crowded so come early to park and meet me at the trailhead at 6am. It will be HOT so bring enough water.
Beginners are welcome but I'll go at my own medium pace (no offense meant). It's a bit of a tough hike as it has a steepish slope. But...you can always turn around at any point and go back down which is the beauty of this hike.
Hope to see you on the trail!
