Additonal markers have been added to those already in existance along with several new signs in the area hikers have been known to get lost in the trail above and below the boulder field. Follow the markers, they're plentiful. (note: no markers in the first mile or so, no need for them). Sign at the bottom indicates main issue is hikers misjudging time, coming down at dusk, rushing, and leaving the trail. Do not come down in the dusk w/o good headlamp and previous experience. As a day hike, it is no risk.
There are 2 or 3 forks near the bottom where you can go left for steepest trail, or straight for switchbacks and in all cases they quickly rejoin.
