    Hell on a hot day. Only go on a cool, cloudy one. Heat can be dangerous.
    Very little water in the summer, but you can swim.
    Lots more water flowing in the winter and spring but no swimming. Spring flowers are beautiful.
    Not easy but a good time.

    Great for families with kiddos, more of a walk than a hike. Very easy, climbing through the canyon is fun

    Not amazing, not bad. Pretty steep up, long and winding down. Glad I did it but wouldn’t go again

    We went up in February, in 3ft of snow. Camping wasn’t impossible, but it was tricky finding a dry patch. No one was around, which for some is scary but if you enjoy a serene wilderness experience, SJ in the snow is the way to go. The trail to the summit was completely snowed over, so we followed footprints, and ended up climbing straight up the east side of the mountain. It was terrifying and a calf burner but very rewarding. Do not attempt without crampons ($30 yaktrax from REI worked great). Ice ax optional, trekking poles work fine.
    If it’s a sunny day, bring sun screen. The light will reflect off the snow and you will fry.
    Amazing views. You feel on top of the world. I’m scared of heights, but still loved the adventure.
