I love this trail; I was beside myself up and down it. Through meadows full of alpine mountain flowers, surrounded by snowy mountains, you wind along a fairly easy path until you finally get to the base of Black Tusk. A sign marks the "End of maintained trail", and the last couple of hundred meters is a steep and slogging scree climb. I didn't go up the chimney but the view from the base of the Tusk was gorgeous at sunset.
