Being an inexperienced hiker, I estimated it would take us about 3-4 hours to get to our site. Having started in the mid-afternoon, we were racing against the sunset to get to our site. Luckily we made good time on the trail. Although uneven, the little elevation change worked in our favour and was able to get to our site and enjoy the spectacular view of the early fall sunset.
The next morning we enjoyed the sunrise and hiked back to our car early in the morning which took a little longer than our hike in.
