Perfect conditions for doing this with the sharp vegetation on a lot of the trail. The road in was more of the challenge for the route, and once at the bridge over the CAP canal, it was pretty easy to find the trail to the summit. Only in a few spots was it confusing, but then you knew where you were going. Cairns, shockingly well built sections of trail with stairs and graded switchbacks that are now long abandoned was very easy to follow at times, and sad to see long forgotten by most hikers. Good to be back on Newman, and if I go again this is the way to do it. I do think the stats don't reflect the difficulty, but it makes a perfect hike for someone like me, this time of year.
