Miles Hiked: 5.50 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: This hike was a long journey. My fiancee and I decided to do a 30 minute and ended up on this trail. Not knowing our mistake, we decided to keep going "the end has to be right around the next corner." The view and overall fun of the trail keep us going far past what we should have. We were not prepared, no 10 essentials, and it got very dangerous. It gets pitch black at night on this trail. We could not see each other on the way out, nor could we see the ground very well. Take note to be cautious of the animals as well. We startled something large at dusk, not sure what it was, but it was big like a mountain lion or a bear. Everyone should make this hike!!!
