Very roughly, the hike is about 10 miles, 4000' elevation gain. Very hard hike. The view on the Peak is exceptional.
Our recent trip up there found that the first part of the trail was heavily overgrown, with stretches that the grass was chest high. Since generally speaking, grass does not pose that much a barrier, we just waded through. And this time, the trail is already blazed out. The second part of the trail was surprisingly clear (in Organ Peak Trail terms). Still, long pants are strongly recommended, and relatively high boots if applicable.
And also, make sure you got good knees, strong legs, and no kidding, a brave heart. Those are what it takes to do this hike.
Bring at least 5 liters of drinking water.
Let's do the Peak!
