Equipment Used: Trekking poles helpful on steep terrain.

Type of trails: starts on good Park Service Trail, then cuts up an abandoned trail which is hard to find. Trail is then good for 15 minutes and then for the rest of the time ranges from good to nonexistent.

Difficulty: HARD route finding. Expect to get lost. Stay cool and don't go up or down any cliff bands that are hard to reverse. Wear pants, or at least bring some for the top where there will be some bushwhacking.

Hike Description: This trail was built by the Park Service then abandoned many years ago. Rock slides and erosion have washed out about 50% of it. Follow cairns, your intuition, and the track. HOWEVER, the track is the way we went which was probably only 90% on the best path to take. At one point we climbed a cliff band up and left and we should have stayed to the right. So keep you trail finding sense honed, as you always do in the mountains.

Takes about 2-4 hours up, 45 minutes over to Yosemite Falls, and an hour down the Yosemite Falls Trail.
