I took the trail that goes right under the ski lift. That plus Devil’s Backbone all the way up and it was difficult for me. I liked it, but I wouldn’t recommend it for casual hikers. It was more of a test for myself to see if I’m getting back in shape. It took about 7 hours, but i didn’t take the ski lift trail down. I took the fire road because my knees were kind of hurting. Lots of great views, but be prepared. I did this 08-16-20, where there were fires in the distance and a heat warning. A great day, and it ended up being almost exactly 9 miles.★ ★ ★
