Great place to take out-of-towners if you don't want to drive to the national park. I'll be back

Great hike up, started around 730 and round trip was around 2 hours. Only ended up going to Nebel Horn, but I'll be back to summit the whole thing!

solid hike, last scramble at the end is tough but worth it. Bring plenty of water especially if you're bringing your dog(s) along.
