It usually takes about 5 to 7 hours to complete, but it’s worth it as the scenery along the way is breathtaking.

It is important to be prepared for the hike by wearing appropriate footwear, bringing plenty of water, and carrying a hat and sunscreen. Visitors should also be aware that there are no facilities along the trail, so they should bring their own food and supplies.
