- Plan A – the whole shebang, 9.5 miles, from Hiking Upward;
- Plan B – the shorter, 5.5 mile trail from the trailhead at Scotthorn Gap; or
- Plan C – a car shuttle, starting from either trailhead after leaving cars at both, shortening the trip to 7.5 miles.

Strickler Knob: A Moderate (and incomplete) Day Hike
Over a hearty breakfast, we chose Plan C…we’ve come down from Duncan Knob and Old Rag in the dark before(in fact Chris and I did the last 3 miles of Half Dome in the dark in 2005), something we didn’t want to repeat, and we decided that 9.5 miles would guarantee that same result again.
