Really fun hike, with great views. It looks like no one has taken this trail in a while, most of the cairns were down, but we replaced many of them, hence the slow time getting up to the top. Finding our way through Tortilla Creek was difficult as well, because most the cairns had all washed away due to significant rain a month ago, the creek is still flowing briskly. Note: At 65 years old, I consider the last 50 feet before the summit to be a scramble, but that's just me. Lot's of potential exposure, but only if you allow someone to get too close to the edge, be careful !!The previous warning from Joe to not take children or dogs is wise counsel. Don't let that stop you from a very fun hike.
