    Backpacked this for a couple days with two buddies. Incredible spot to camp with great options for day hikes from camp around the area. Trail was mostly well maintained, but there were multiple trees that had to be crossed along the way. Hike up was grueling. Long, hard, rocky paths with multiple sets of switchbacks. Very beautiful rewarding and remote area once you arrive, and that makes it very worth it. At the fork will be your last chance to filter water for the next roughly 1.5-2 miles of steep trail so make sure to be well hydrated at this point. The hike up took my group roughly 7 hours, under heavy loads of gear, and about 5 hours to get back down.
