This wilderness hiking trail has a total elevation difference of 886 feet which is a lower than average number. This area does get very dry sometimes, so donít forget to check for any current fire restrictions before you go.

The time needed for this backcountry trek is roughly 4.5 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that. Being 5.2 miles long it's a mid length backcountry hike. There's not much difference in elevation along Tipsoo Trail which means the conditions are about the same from start to finish. This hiking trail is not that long but you should still bring some emergency supplies just in case something happens.
