I did this hike on Easter Sunday, 2019 and it was incredible. Make sure you allot enough time to soak in a bit of solitude from the ashram. Gorgeous surroundings and a fun, varied hike. The adventure truly starts as soon as you leave the pavement. We parked at a turnout before the road got super gnarly about a mile before the trailhead, but a true off road vehicle could have made it the whole way.
