We hiked this route last September. We start 1am midnight. We got all our gear ready. It was only half mile & will be in the summit, but we had to turn around due to weather was in favor for us that day, wind & clouds was getting crazy. We checked the weather before we go but we just never know, it's changes every second specially you are in the highest altitude. Better be safe than sorry! . Worse hike I've ever been. Better Train yourself & plan before u do this hike. Definitely going back to reach the summit. View is amazing when u reach to the top!
Great Trail. Slightly Challenging. If your not used to the altitude it will be even more of a challenge. Trail not marked and it can be easy to stray. Just stay on the rocky path and follow other hikers. Once you reach Heart Lake, you can continue west up on the ridge to get an AMAZING view of Mt Shasta and the surrounding area. Stay positive.
