Great hike. Trail to the top of the mountain was very steep and icy. Easy from that point forward other than the deep snow and eater covered bear meadow trail. Some fantastic views from the ridge.

Almost completely flat except for the initial ascent and subsequent descent. If it rains, the lower levels flood pretty bad.

took my 3 youngest kids on this trail as an overnight to give them their first taste of backpacking. Thanks was so much for them to see. Very good trip

easy to moderate trail- lots of wildlife (including mosquitoes!). Done this trail several times in recent years- best in spring early summer- muddy but lovely wildflowers.

bear meadows is a hard yet rewarding trail to do. The views are completely worth it.
