Good, steep hike. Still snow packed and icy at the top. Be sure to bring some traction aids.

A lot of adventuring to be had on this trail. Really close off the freeway and near 3300. Close to millcreek and just a great alternative to do whatever you want because there's a million ways to go and side trails. Picnic tables at the bottom.

This hike is very steep the whole way. You don't need to be in good shape- just need to be touch mentality. I hiked up like a boss and then played the Rocky theme music. :D

clearly marked trail starting in the back of the picnic area just down the canyon from the reception place. The incline is actually very pleasant, steep in a couple places but great scenery the entire way. the summit is still accessible during the winter, however the last push to the top gets a little steep and icy, crampons and trekking poles are recommended.

This is a tough, steep trail with no shade. I thought "how long can it possibly take me to hike 2.2 miles? it turns out it can take a good little while when you're climbing 1500' mile. If you're purely out for exercise this is better than being inside on a stairstepper, but for a good time in the mountains I'd definitely recommend driving around to the East side and climbing from there. Much prettier, more reasonably graded trail.

Really great workout with tons of switchbacks to spice up the trail a little bit! It's pretty steep with lots of exposure so get ready to sweat and make sure to bring lots of water and a couple snacks! But well worth it at the top due to the amazing view!
