Ran this today for the first time. Great trail but a little hard to follow on the scramble up to the saddle. The knifes edge crossing was fun and the last steep ascent is very steep. Went car to car in 3.5 hours and felt pretty good about it.

Totally worth it. Less strenuous than Lake Blanche, but longer.

About a half a mile into the hike I was wondering when it would become challenging and then it happens! This hike is very doable for sure, but definitely not a walk in the park. Bring enough water and some snacks. I'm always shocked to see people hiking in flip flops carrying a 12oz bottle of water.

It was very hard but so worth it.

The trail is very hard but the payoff at the top is amazing. And thanks to the many souls who've put up rock cairns to guide the many different ways to approach the peak.

We love to take our 4 year old son to silver lake. Good chance to see wildlife and it's an easy stroll for all.

This is one of my favorite hikes yet. Not too hard and beautiful the whole way
