Beautiful trip. Definitely a difficult hike. Lots of ups amd downs. My body is totally feeling it today.

This hike is fantastic. Lots of wildflowers and spectacular views. The altitude can make it more difficult if you are not used to being more than a mile above sea level. What also makes this great is that you are on the Pacific Crest Trail the entire way, something to put on your bucket list.

I would have rated this 5-stars if the trail was better maintained. some parts are getting hard to follow and quite a few downed trees. from fire road 18 it starts off a little unimpressive- just a lot of switchbacks in the woods. but once you get up to the Ridgeline, views are awesome - if visibility is good, there is a vantage point about 10 miles in where you can see 5 of the surrounding stratovolcanoes.

It was a great view but it was a good climb to get there. I would do it again. there is a peak where you see all 4 mountains at the top.
