Hiked this yesterday. The first mile of the hike was surprisingly steep. Although we continued to gain elevation after the first mile, it was more gradual. The final crossing to the summit looked quite difficult when we got there. I was ready to turn around, but my husband encouraged me to keep going. The trail is quite narrow at that point and you are walking across a fairly steep incline. There is snow on that part of the trail in certain areas and we had to be very careful. Another hiker coming back from the summit warned us about the snow and told us to put on our microspikes. We did, and we were very glad. Once we reached the summit it was all well worth it. There is a lot of really interesting geology on the hike. I love to take pictures of textures we find when we are hiking, and there were SO MANY on this trail. Also, the possibility of running into Bison on the trail makes it very exciting - we didn't see any Bison on the trail (lots of poop though) but did see 3 when we got back down and were driving out...in fact, one came very close to our vehicle. Today I am definitely a little sore from the hike, but we loved it and would do it again. We plan to go back with our kids and take them on the cutoff to Dooley's Knob.

i may have taken a different route but it was just as fun, if not better. I hiked in a fairly large group on a 5 day round trip, totalling just over 60 miles. This is a unique hike that you will remember forever. A must go for someone teained enough. It is difficult, but fairly flat up until the summit, which is a large boulder crawl.
