Over the past few months there have been issues surrounding this mountain like entrance or fees for every stop –due to private property issues- though that is somewhat more of inconvenience issue.
The main issue about this destination is that there are people asking hikers to take guides even though it is totally unnecessary. In fact as you get near the jump off point there would be kids and adults alike who would offer you guiding services, like seriously! If a kid can guide you through the new trail why would you need a guide at all!? The new trail is very readable, just a straight line that you need to follow. So make sure to research well at the time before you embark on your journey to check what are the conditions of the said issue or if they have resolved it already.
