I always enjoy this hike, however dog owners pack a lot of water for your dog since it is a dry trail. Beware of porcupines they are everywhere here!!

The hike was great through the woods and well marked. The view was decent but somewhat blocked by cell towers and ski lifts - doesn't feel too rustic at the top...

Easy to follow-winter hike :)

Nice, rough but nice! The view was worth the squeeze

Shelburn trail was great today. 1:40 to the camp and 30 min to the top. Trail was packed and was easy to follow. Blue blazes that you can see when on thr ski trails when you go in and out of them

A very nice trail that starts off pretty easy, but ends up being a workout at the end. The top of the peak is rather spoiled by the communications equipment and ski lift, but aside from that the views are tremendous. Well worth the effort.
