Longest hike I have done so far, the hike itself is not difficult but it is a long day and the route is hard to find. Trail starts with an easy hike in the forest to Rockbound Lake then you need to find the trail at the right of the lake; once that is done you go up to the bottom of Helena Peak and then to a plateau where I lost the trail and ended up going way too high towards Stuart Knob. Had to ask a marmot for directions but it was not very helpful. Did this hike on 9 July, still lots of snow up there and only had light hiking shoes, good thing there were footsteps in the snow. View is definitely worth it!

Despite the long slog in the forest, the final approach and the epic finish make this a mind blowing experience.
