    Go down to water.. then the Giant Stairs.... and then up again in the end.. I would start North.. you are fresh and will have energy to go down the uneven rock stairs.you will rest at a beautiful waterfall at the bottom... then a short hike to the...The Giant Stairs much longer and challenging than expected... despite all of the signs saying it is going to get a bit rough. Lol.. better have good boots..if your a super human, maybe trail runners. However many were in sneakers as they were not expecting the terrain to be so boulderish and made it through, although they seemed a bit uncomfortable on some of the trail for lack sole support. The last push is a pretty long return up.. it has cut backs and stairs to decrease grade and is a doable but challenging return up.. My Hokas did excellent. Very pretty scenery.. harder than I was planning but well worth it.

    Halfway into the Hike - the rock-crawl - Rock-Climb near “Giant Steps” is challenging but fun. It lasts for a mile and recommend being athletic to truly enjoy experience .
