    This trail is "as advertised." If you're looking for a great workout and some isolation on the trail, this is a terrific hike. The trailhead is crowded but 99.9% of hikers are headed to The Bridge to Nowhere. Finding your rhythm is easy enough at the start, but the super steep sections as you get past the saddle are jarring and will slow you down. I turned back from the summit with about a half mile to go because some truly bad weather was moving in. The descent was pounding on the legs but it is a rewarding hike that I plan on doing again. The views are excellent throughout and the solitude makes it worthwhile the whole way.
