    Pretty tough for 45 year old dad-bods! Doable but you’ve got to want it. Nice overlook about 2/3 of the way. The last 1/3 was harder than I was hoping after struggling through the first 2/3. Priest overlook is apparently just after the map waypoint. Just off the trail to your right. Amazing view! Back half, down to Crabtree Falls, is easy until the last ~1.5miles, which is pretty downhill and burns the quads. Crabtree Falls were just ok. Looking Glass and Cascades Falls are better IMO. Took us 6.5hrs to get to our pre-parked car, but we are in average to below average shape for 45 year olds.
