A bit late in the season and about 1/2 the trail had snow but I made it. I lost the trail the last few hundred yards from the top with the amount of snow. Was grateful to have Yaktrax. This is a steep one. Pretty constant. Short sections of the trail my heels didn’t even touch the ground. Definitely worth it. Feels longer than what they say it is though. This hike is not for everyone. Make sure your legs are in good shape. Poles are a must. Take extra water. Views at the top are amazing. Pretty the whole hike though.

This climb is fantastic and will leave you with many prideful feelings about your achievement at the summit. The trail is unrelentingly steep, yet soft dirt because it’s so grown in and winds through and old er forest with minimal soil erosion. My map showed two trails, but there was just one. It was easy to follow (as of Sept 15, 2019). Great views of Southern Glacier NP from the top, but the tops of the peaks were enshrouded with clouds on the day I was there. This is a bomb-ass climb definitely worth the Effort!!

Holy Toledo this hike was hard! Still amazing though. Didn't have trecking poles, but I think it would have helped my knees a ton going down. Also- my Fitbit clocked it about 4.5miles each way, so more like 10miles round trip.

We were up for a challenge with my three other friends and their dog and we chose this hike. This was my first hike to be rated as “hard”. This was indeed the most difficult hike I have ever done, I even teared up when we reached the peak. There are better views I’ve seen other than this one, but the feeling of fulfillment after reaching the very peak is just amazing. A challenging hike I thought I’ll never finish.

Solid. Views only the last mile. Steady uphill. Great for escaping the crowds in the park!

It may have just been the day or the trial. But the payoff at the end wasn’t that great. The trail is very difficult without a lot of moments to enjoy anything. If you want a tough hike just because you like a challenge, then this is it. But there are easier hikes with better payoffs nearby.

This trail is no joke. I would say it is more like very hard than hard. Though it is only 6.6 miles total, it is a steep climb virtually the whole way to the summit. But, in the end, the view and the sense of accomplishment are worth it. The trail still has a little snow up top to walk through, but not enough to hinder your summit.

5/27/19 Good hike with great views of the peaks in the park. Still quite a bit of snow towards the top. We made it just below summit. Lost trail. Two other groups followed the trail a little better than we did and summited.

Difficult hike for the weary but an unbelievable view of glacier from a side rarely visited. The trail is not highly trafficked and can be bushy at times. Don't succumb to high hopes on the false summits and when you get to the top you will pat yourself on the back with a big grin. Be very careful crossing road to get to the trail- esp July-august as visitors pour in.

Difficult trail as it's pretty much straight up hill from the get go. Nice steep wooded intro for a couple miles, then starts to offer alpine views as the trees thin out....ever steepening trail. I've read somewhere that it's a four mile trail to the top and 4000 ft. gain in altitude, but it didn't seem as long or as much climb? However, I went on an overcast, rainy day and my phone app died three quarters of the way on the round trip and was too glitchy for reliable information. It's very steep, even for switchbacks, and unrelenting until the top. It's possible that I didn't reach the end I suppose, but I did find the scattered ruins of the old lookout that's supposedly at the summit....bed spring and old, old beams that had been cut up. Plus the trail petered out to meandering game trails. I did the round trip hike with my two malamutes in about 4 hrs. On a clear day the views must be grand. One negative about this trail is the lack of parking and the danger of the highway at the trailhead! If you have dogs you will need to leash them immediately and for several hundred feet past the trailhead, and again upon return....this parking is good for one large vehicle (two small) and on the opposite side of the highway AND on a bend where you'll encounter truck traffic at 60 mph on hwy 2! If you have dogs, have a plan upon approach knowing you can't just drop your tailgate and let them run at trailhead.
