Checked this off my list. I've been pondering this hike for 2 years and finally managed to squeeze it in. Yes it's a burning hike. I'm not a fan of reverse hikes but here we go.

As usual I like the road less traveled. We ran into one domesticated human hiking out as we were about 1 mile in. A quick chat revealed he had camped overnight and warned of the confusing trails within. Continuing on we ran into a family hiking out and looking pretty haggard. Chalking that up to the fact that they didn't look like hikers we continued on. Fabulous views as we crossed the ridgelines and began the descent into the steep switchbacks. Yes this hike will burn but well worth it. The meadow before the final descent is definitely a sound of music through back. A must do hike into hell and hell's gate. What goes down must go back up.
