cross country skiing
had to trek through some snow on the way up but the trail was in great shape and beautiful views. Will try and make it to the peak next time
There was a lot of snow still so I didn't make it all the way to the lake but it was still a very good hike.
A great hike! Loved the subalpine larch and views!
I've been here a few times. Very pretty hike. The trail leads to a lake which has a good view of the peak. There is no trail beyond the lake however. Bushwhacking is required if you want to get to the very top, which I learned can turn into an interesting and physically challenging adventure. When you reach the top though, the spectacular views make it all worth while. This trip took us about 7 hours, with a 40 minute break for lunch.
