If you have never been down this trail it is something you must do before you leave this earth. I am very fearful of heights but that did not keep me from taking the hike down the trail with my wife and two children. It was the most incredible experience with nature I have experienced. It was a bit scary at times when you have to share a narrow part of the trail with other hikers passing you or going in the opposite direction but that's part of the appeal. Take water! It was 110 degrees when we visited. We only went about two miles down and then turned and headed back up. Great exercise. Great Fun. Can't wait until next time.
