Points of Interest:
Did this loop yesterday. I really enjoyed the hike up. However, taking Chapman Trail down was much scarier then I thought it would be. There were many places in the upper half where we were hiking a very narrow ledge with loose rocks.
Yes a lot of exposure going down chapman, first timers like me I loved it, but yes upper chapman must be careful.
this also looks really awesome! thanks for your suggestion. I will be reading your posts a lot.
