The views from the top were worth the hike, but be warned that the trail is SLICK. The snow was completely packed down, making it a fairly dangerous hike. Make sure you wear shoes with good traction. The trail itself wasn’t anything to write home about, but it was an easy enough hike without too much elevation gain for a good view.

Fairly easy 30min hike. Thought there was a bit of scrambling from what I've read from other reviews, but there were none. Anyway it was absolutely gorgeous with the blue water!!

A steady climb as you work your way around the mountain towards the backside. It levels out to a beautiful meadow which is a great place to prep before taking in the steep ascent to the peak. A bit of scrambling towards the top but once that peak is reached prepare for breathtaking views all around
