Be sure to bring your bug spray. We visited in June 2014 and were swarmed with mosquitos. The kids and I probably could have completed the hike, but my wife is loved by all mosquitos and had five bites within the first minute. We had to bail out early, but the trail was very nice otherwise.

Hiked this trail with my dad and brother and had an awesome time. It's a moderately intense hike but nothing too serious.
