Great, well-defined trail until the top. The forest part can be a bit tedoius but the views once you get out of the trees make it worth it.

A good workout. We went there at end of June. The glacier lilies, paint brushes and other flowers (I don't know the name) were blooming. They are so beautiful. The views at the end of hike were fine.

Good easy hike with minimal elevation gain. If you add the Simpson Pass Trail you can have a nice little loop walking past a lake o, It adds roughly and hour and half. Great during early to mid summer for flower viewing.

Be warned the end of Healy Pass is not marked so if you continue down the hill it turns into Egypt Lake Trail and your next marking will tell you to go back to connect to Healy Pass.
