Pretty easy hike, no one there in late June and the views were really amazing! Really worth it.

Follow the skyline trail for some time for better views of the surrounding peaks and valleys, if time permits. Spotted some mammoths at the top!

Pretty amazing hike. Once you summit, the views are amazing.

Beautiful hike. Lots of uphill but well worth it. The alpine meadow was quite unique. Unfortunately, smoke from forest fires obscured much of the views but we stilk enjoyed being at the summit

fairly busy up hill hike. it was quite smoky from the wildfires so the views were not great. definetly recommend going to the top for a more satisfying view. go right at where the loop begins for a more gradual incline and better views coming down. w
Would love to do this hike again when the smoke clears!

But if a grind to start and finish on logging road, but upper trail along the ridge is world class. Incredible views. Just wonderful. Bring your bug spray as they were very bad until it got too windy. Overall loved the hike. The loop at the top was just great.

The trail is well maintained on the fire road and if you continue on the right side of the loop. If you go left at the loop junction it is much steeper and full of roots and looser rock. Trail is fairly steep and can be exhausting at times. We only went to the peak of the loop with okay views. The bugs are also bad. July 15 2017.

Great hike. We hiked this May 28, 2017 and the trail was still completely covered in snow. The first 30 minutes were dry and then all of a sudden you hit knee deep snow. We did not have snow shoes but the hike was still doable. We just put our feet in other peoples steps (if you don't do this, you will wall through and be deep in the snow).

The hike was beautiful and the view from the top is very nice. We were not able to make the loop due to the snow and instead came down the same way we went up. The hike would be easy if there was not snow on the trail.

The total hike with snow too us 4 Hours round trip.

Make sure you bring snowshoes! I went there with hiking boots (end of May) and I had to turn around because I couldnt walk in the snow. I would do it again, but in summer.
