邻近 Colfax, California (United States)

This hike is difficult due to frequent narrow spots with steep drop-offs. It's anything but fast going and can be brutally hot in the exposed areas during the summer. It's not for the faint of heart past Windy Point. Elevation profile isn't accurate, neither is distance. Total elevation gain according to Google Earth is 1,585 and loss is 2,400 with a length of 5.46-miles.

Would estimate this as a 4-hour hike with limited stops.
