This hiking trail has a total elevation difference of 1,369 feet, and that is about average. This hiking trail has only one trailhead, so in and out is the way to trek it normally. This trek shouldn't take more than 5.5 hours, but of course some folks walk a bit slower and some a bit faster. With its 6.4 miles of walking distance it's an average length backpacking trail. The backpacking trail stays roughly within the same elevation zone the whole time, so you get pretty much the same conditions along the whole backpacking trail. This backpacking and hiking trail sometimes gets very dry, so make sure you check current conditions and fire restrictions with local forest authorities before you head out. Keep in mind that this is a long backpacking and hiking trail, so do pack enough food to last the whole trip.
