This hike was great. It actually is 4.3 miles, though if you count it from the parking area round trip. The views are spectacular and you will cross a variety of terrains as you make your way around. As always, remember to bring plenty of water/gatorade with you as you will need it. We went yesterday and the weather was perfect.
