great hike. love the different array of peaks you can see when out at the horn.

Hiked it on October 13, 1992, and October 24, 2015.

Peak foliage provided spectacular colors. The forest shifted colors at least 5 times from pink, orange, red, yellow, and evergreens. Fog and rain on the summit, so unfortunately no views. Challenging hike at times.

Pleasant hike with lots of views near the top. There are many variations to increase or decrease the length of the hike based on time and energy available. It is a bit crowded though.

Beautiful view from the top. Great place for dogs off leash. First half is harder than the first, so don’t get discouraged!

Such an amazing hike, well marked trails, beautiful views along the way up, barely anyone on the trail, so incredible!!!!
