    A great trip for everyone. If you have questions about difficulty ask me. Would be great to see lots of Scouts on this great hike.

    I thought that this was a very fun and challenging hike even though it was very cold. It was a good experience and I think everyone enjoyed it. I think we should do it again but JB cannot come.

    Very challenging and rewarding. Online reviews called this a challenging hike. Yup, I’m feeling it in the glutes.

    On this hike I was reminded that mountain weather is unpredictable – Wrightwood temps at the Vincent trailhead were in the low 50’s when we started, which is perfect since I got warmed up pretty quickly as soon as we started uphill. However, if you factor in the wind chill, the temperature felt like it was 10 degrees colder. Some hikers along the trail wore only a T-shirt and shorts, However, I was a little uncomfortable in the cold and could not feel my fingers at the summit; recommend a pair of gloves (Be Prepared).

    Next time, I would hike at my own pace so that I can take in and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. I had to go a little faster than my ideal comfort speed so that I could keep up with the speedy scouts. We made it to the summit (4 miles) in only 60 minutes – we had planned for a 2 hour ascent.

    All in all – Good fun !
