Wiliwilnui Ridge Trail

4.7 miles   1,617ft elevation   Out/Back Trail

AllTrails lists it as Moderate

This trail was challenging in parts, but I really enjoyed it.  As always, it was wet/muddy in a lot of places.  A few ropes in places that really came in handy, especially on the return trip.  Some steps, either man-made or cut into the slope really helped out. I was definitely trying not to slide down the hill in several spots.  Had to turn around backwards several times to go down certain sections, mostly on the top third of the trail. It was almost more difficult going down then it was up.  This was where I learned about removable shoe spikes from another hiker who had them on, and how much easier it would have made this hike for me.  As with all the hikes, bring plenty of water, and a nice hand towel comes in handy to wipe your sweat.  Long hike, but worth it for the views and of course, the personal challenge!
