    I've done this as a two day backpack and dayhiked it as well. Bring a ton of water. There is zero water out there in the 15 miles to Cape Solitude. Bring a headlamp and extra batteries. When I dayhiked it I did almost 5 hours in the dark. Without a GPS track to follow I wouldn't have made it out as the trail gets really obscure and even with a headlamp it would have been tough to stay on track without a GPS. It's hot out there even when the temps are in the 60s. There is zero shade. You've got to really want to get to Cape Solitude to travel on this route. It's definitely rarely used. I've never seen another soul out there. There aren't a ton of great views and the terrain becomes very tedious for hours on end. Be 100% sure that you know what you are getting into before embarking on this trip.
