Before I give all the usual glowing reports about how beautiful this hike is, I feel obligated to say that most readers should probably forget all that and not take this trip. There’s no two ways about it—this is a punishing hike on a ridiculously steep trail that will really test your lungs and thighs on the way up. And you won’t get a break on the way back down either because your knees and toes will surely complain about all the pounding and jamming. Also, on the descent, you will need to be very careful with your footing to avoid a fall at places with loose pebbles. Thus, only the strongest and most sure-footed hikers should take this trip.
