Hi! It is safe to hike alone/solo female traveler?
Hi. As a female who hikes all the time, I would feel comfortable hiking it alone in the day time.
Yes I think it is quite safe. There are lots of people around, we passed a couple group tours as well. It's hard to go "off path". I'd recommend you let a park ranger know your intended route, and leave contact info at the visitor centre if you are worried. :)
