Moderate hike if you are not that experienced! Return was 3-4hr, nice hike but the views are not that incredible. I wouldn't do this one again. Not worth it in my opinion!

Easy hike, first attempt was in the spring when there was still ice which was dangerous and had to turn around because we did not have ice cleats. 2nd attempt we did in the summer and it was nice. We brought a first time hiker on this one!

Great fast hike - takes approximately 3-4 hours to complete round trip. It is steep the whole way, and very windy at the top but the views are worth it.

My first time I did this trek I was an hour and 40 minutes getting to the top. I recently wanted to test how far Ive come since my first summit and ive knocked it down to an hour and 2 minutes. The hike itself is fairly boring. Its always very High trafficked, mostly zig zagging along where the gondola runs. Theres a nice waterfall aboit half way up always makes for a good rest spot. The views at the top are great, thoigh when I summit I usually go off the walking trail to the more eastern peaks makes for some fun scrambles. J.

I banged this hike out a few days ago. though the top of the pass was very windy the views were amazing. I was with a first timer on a mountain so it took us 2 1/2 hours to get to the top, thoigh could easily be done on just over an hour. The thing i liked most being with a novice was there were some steep elevation pitches, but a lot of flat walks for easy recovery. I will be heading back up soon to summit the tower. Lots of wildlife so keep your eyes peeled! cheers folks. J.

Short hike, Miner's Peak directly across, one hike with the beautiful views of 2 peaks.

Excellent half day hike. Took us 1.75hrs up (with two novice hikers), spent 1-2 hours at the ridge and summit, and then ran down in 30ish mins. Pretty busy, quite Windy on 17/6/17.

Walked around the lake to the campground. Definitely going to spend a night or two there! Tons of wild flowers and great views. Very easy hike I would do again.

Pretty steep the whole way up. Took about 3 hours up and down with time to spend up at the top. Definitely recommend hiking poles. Wish I brought gloves and a windbreaker for the top because it was so windy. Also the trail gets pretty busy so try and get there early (before 9am). The view is amazing!!

Did this hike June 18, in one day. Lake still partially frozen. Made it up in 5:15 hours and down in 4 hours. Part of the trail was washed out but new trail has been set and is flagged well.
