I started at Manker Flats Trailhead with a group of 5. We hiked counter clockwise, which is my preferred method, and if you have done both ways, you might agree. I would rather have the shaded downhill in the later part of the hike, than the open trail with the sun beating down on me. We left at 6 am and were done and on the road before 1 pm, that's with multiple stops for breaks and a 30 minute lunch at the summit. The weather was perfect.
