Fun time had by all. 9 hours of uphill snow and scree from horse camp to the summer, 3 hours of (mostly glissading) downhill. Would probably be quicker earlier in the season; snow was very soft once sun came up.

Beautiful but do not underestimate this mountain. Didn't reach the top this time due to a fallen soldier but will return

awesome!

Fantastic hike!! Just do it, you'll be glad you did! Great views, lush forest, vibrant wildflowers, small waterfalls, and stunning lakes make this one of the best hikes I've ever done. Plus our dogs had a blast.

I've done this hike several times, most recently on Sunday, July 2nd. I hiked above Heart Lake and this is the view from the summit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LITgUmGLKA

One of my favorite hikes! Amazing views!

Nice Creek, and waterfall is beautiful and fun to play in. Many "permanent" homeless camps.

Awesome views and refreshing lake st the top!

Don't follow the AllTrails directions, as it leads you to a dead end on the wrong side of the mountain. Go to the ranger station on Alma St in Mt. Shasta and they will give you a paper with directions to the trailhead. My Hyundai Elantra made it pretty far on the 20 min dirt road but I had to stop a bit early from the parking lot due to the steep drop. I recommend something a bit further off the ground. Watch the bushes on the sides because they can scratch your car. The view from the top and during is amazing, you can't get a better view of Shasta. Steep drop offs on the Trail and it's very narrow especially at the top. I wouldn't recommend bringing children. Most of the trail is made up of large rocks. Hard to run it. Hiking boots were great. Be prepared for almost full exposure, bring a lot of water. Great hike, rocks make it interesting and fun and amazing views!
