An interesting mix of experiences awaits you on this trek: a stroll down an old stagecoach path, meandering passages up and down boulder-strewn canyons, a visit to the view-packed summit of Whale Peak, and even some flat and easy walking in Blair and Little Blair valleys. Parts of the route have room for improvisation, so dust off your navigational skills. Note that there are no permanent sources of water along the route.
