The only person we saw out there was an Asian woman who was finishing just as we were starting off. After that we had the entire trail to ourselves; we didn't even hear any vehicles going down or coming up Fresnal Canyon Road.
After the hike we returned to the cabin to finish packing for our trip back to the lower desert, where it's also very windy.
