Took the whole day for this trip but it was well worth the effort. Thank goodness I remembered my Lowa's cause otherwise I would've been hurting afterwords. It's practically a hike on it's own just to get from where you park to the actual trail head for the Misery Ridge loop.
It takes you up the side and all over the top of this amazing structure before putting you back down the other side near the river for a gentle walk back to the trail head.
The whole thing is quite the climb but my boots made it all possible. In fact I love them so much that I had convinced my sister to get a pair as well! All in all the view was amazing and the hike was rewarding. I can't imagine using any other boot again to be honest.
