Ascent Trip ReportThis is a great hike! Beautiful, temperate weather. Great company.
The view from the tram up is amazing. The hike is an easier hike and moderate distance- 5.5 miles one way. We had an injury on the way up and had to go nice and slow- but this made for a relaxing and LONG day. (I hate my friend injured his knee!!)
The night view from the observation deck to the world below- AMAZING! Night-time tram ride down so wonderful!
Prob could have finished hike in 5 hours up and down.
way up- 2.5 liters water, 1 liter propel, 1 sandwich, 2 gu gels
way down- 2 liters water, propel, 1 sandwich (next time do cheese and tomato), gu gel.
will do again.
