This is a great hike..steep at first ,great cairns to follow..(and add to) the views are great and the top has a great ledge to rest to rest on before continuing on to the summit. it has been go to...hiked it 3 times so far.... ; )
I hiked this trail on 5/21/16 the views and conditions were great. I would call it a fairly easy hike however that is just my opinion. There are a couple steep parts but for the most part there are gradual inclines. To get the best experience bring bug spray.
The hike itself was good, though boy were the black flies out today!
This trail had some spectacular views all alone the way.I wouldn't recommend this if it's your first time hiking because it is challenging at times but it was well worth the effort. The trail is very well marked and has an unexpected down turn before you reach the summit so don't think your going the wrong way.
Did this trail in late March, parking was fine. Trail was very well marked as we got closer to the top there were large chunks of frozen ice blocking the path but we were able to stray off a bit and still make it just fine :) Beautiful!
Great Trail! Well marked with beautiful views.
Really great hike, very well cut, clearly marked, wouldn't go for this if you are a beginner or have a hard time breathing comfortable walking up a small hill, this is a very steady incline with parts that were slippery due to wet leaves, pine needles and ice. The views were amazing from start to finish. We are so happy we got up and went for it this morning ! Beautiful day for it too
