If you are a hiker that likes going up, this is the type of trail you will love. Trail wastes no time ascending 3000+ feet, beginning with meandering switchbacks and changing to calf-burning inclines before reaching the top. Hiking even in late May or early June may still require scrambling over several feet of snow before getting to the ridge and the trail can be very difficult to follow.
