Amazing views but DO NOT follow what all trails has posted. It's impossible to get up from there.

Awesome view at the top! Went on a long weekend so there were a lot of people going up to Lake Agnes but after that, it thinned out.

Spectacular hike! Views are amazing! Would recommend looking at the recorded tracks as the path they suggest is very confusing, and as we saw could lead to a very dangerous scramble to the summit. The route that should be taken is to follow the switchbacks up to the saddleback of big beehive. Once you get here turn right instead of left and go over the tree trunk "blocking" the path. You will then go around the back. Enjoy!

Read Shelby Blosky's review below - do NOT go up the right side of the last open area before the summit. I hate to admit that we went up the right (not knowing which route to go) and it was not fun. Cross the open area and ascend the last portion of the trail along the tree line. Most of the trail from the Beehive split is narrow but the views are AMAZING!! Not too difficult of a hike if you follow these directions.

This was our first official summit. Definitely a hard trip, not so much because of elevation gain but just due to the narrow trail, which has a lot of scree. There's one really bad part where you have to cross over a scree area, and scramble up the bank to the saddle. When you come to the spot where it looks like maybe you should go to the right up some rocks, or go left across open scree, GO LEFT don't go up the rocks!! So worth the climb

This is a beautiful hike with a little bit of everything! Would rate as a difficult hike due to a steep scree slope and easy steps that may require the use of hands to reach the summit. Highly recommend!

From Agnes take the back of the lake and up the Big Beehive. At the junction take the path to the right, into the trees. (There will be a tree/deadfall) across the trail). After that there is a short but very steep section up to the col. At the top go right and your there! Amazing view!
