To be honest, it wasn't that bad. Of course, we were going down... I would have a whole different story for you if we had started at the bottom instead. The reason for the fair warning is due to the fact that it is not just walking on a trail. You have to climb over rocks and hang onto metal bars jutting out of the side of what is basically the beginnings of a cliff. Then you make your way down some practically vertical stairs and weave your way back to some kind of trail that goes through a riverbed, so you hope you're going the right way! It was a lot of fun, but I would not have wanted to go back up if we couldn't find a connecting way out - which is what I was afraid of. Thankfully it hooked back up with another trail that continued back down the other side of the mountain and we made it back in one piece.
It really was such an enjoyable day, being out in such pristine natural beauty! : )
