Comments
Comments: Absolutely loved this hike. The views were incredible. It was a steep and steady climb, at time over ledges, the last two miles heading up North Moat. The trail continued, descending with steep sections, requiring scrambling down, then heading over to Middle Moat. The climb from Middle to South Moat was relatively easy. But the descent from South Moat was extremely rocky and steep.
