Avoiding heat was easy in November, leaving little hydration issues. I only took two soft flasks and a filter in case of emergency (which I never needed to pull any from the River, which is often difficult to reach from the trail). The removed tresses do cause a slow climb up and down but nothing concerning if used to mountain trails. Probably went too far into the turnaround campground but I wanted to touch the park sign before going back. It a great route with never ending canyons. Watch out for the one tree on the path, it caught me looking down knocking me off me feet around mile 27 or so. I would expect faster times to come out here, and look forward to see what others can do!
