Pristine Alaskan wilderness. Breathtaking views from the overlooks and summit. I did this climb in January and the last mile was 3ft deep snow. The last mile was 'hard' but the rest of the trail was moderate. I am a complete novice when it comes to hiking and was definitely under-prepared. Still this was the best hike I've ever been on. It took me about 3 hours but I was pushing the pace on the way up and basically running on the way down to beat the setting sun and my dying phone battery. If your in Ketchikan, Alaska and in decent physical shape, do yourself a favor and do this hike. 5/5 would recommend.
