    My daugther and I began this trek around 0930 or 1000. Not in any real hurry, she let me take my share of stops up the mountain. She was a trooper and kept telling me werent stopping until we reached the top. We started out taking the meadows trail, up to Greyrock Mountain Peak, and then down the other half of the trail. We had planned to do the loop this way as the Meadows trail is longer than the other side and we figured we would be tired, which we were. The going was rough, but good. You have to be especially careful going up Greyrock, its extremely steep, but usually has a good spot to put a foot. (Tip if you go, you might see columns of rock, this are markers for the way to go, we didnt know that before we left.) All said and done, I think I would have preferred to come up the right hand loop of trail, and come down the meadows, not quite as steep, although it is longer. Word to wise, there is wildlife up there, to be expected. We ran across a black bear on the way back down the trail. It was very cool to see, and glad he didnt see us. What do you do when a bear starts chasing you and you are on this skinny trail. I would definitely do this trail again. Thanks to my daughter for suggesting this, not letting me stop, oh yea, and the four days of misery my calves had afterwards, lol.
