    Did this hike Sunday. 7 miles total with 1500ft of climbing.

    Very nice hike. Every few hundred meters they honor a fallen hotshot with a plaque and a couple personal paragraphs about them.

    Almost shed a few tears when I made it to the memorial.

    It's amazing how fast fires can move through this terrain.

    Pretty much. Probably 3 miles climbing and then 0.5 drop down to the site. Not difficult at all. Get there early for easier parking.
