No joke, this is not a super difficult hike but it is strenuous. I over 65 but I made it! Bring water and by all means wear comfortable shoes and clothing. Shorts or slacks are a better choice than a skirt. Also I saw many people in dress shoes -- leave the Johnston Murphy's in your hotel room -- were tennis shoes. Take some water. Take a small camera -- take your time.
