    Only partial due to mostly impassable snow. Great hike.

    Tough, very technical hike for the inexperienced. Amazing views at the top and well worth it. Very poorly marked trail. Even harder coming down. Go slow and watch for cairns.

    This trail is flat, easy, and well maintained until you get to the last bit. Even the switchbacks heading up the ascent are gentle until you hit the first lookout. Once you get there you are about 1/10th of a mile from the summit, and the last 1/10th of a mile is intense. Most hikers will have no trouble, but if you aren’t in shape, you will struggle. Views at the top are worth it. Saw a swarm of bees against the granite facing area against the trail, so be aware.

    This is a tough trail because of distance. The Bells Pass portion is a steady, unrelenting climb upwards, but a rewarding view from the Pass. It loops around the backside of McDowell Peak and up again to Windgate Pass in a rather unceremonious way. Windgate is nothing special, but there is some unique plant and rock formations on that part. Nice to be away from the crowds once you get off the Gateway Loop.
