We only made it half way but loved it.

We were uncertain with the snow. As we could for see a lot places where you had to cross it on the second half of the hike, we decided to abandon. Still beautiful.

We saw 4 elks and a big ol fairly fresh bear paw print.


The meadow is beautiful.

The beginning of the hike is easy to moderate. A steady but moderate climb through forest until you reach a beautiful meadow situated between 2 mountains. Once you reach the top of the meadow to the saddle, the trail becomes rocky and much steeper. Plenty of wildlife and fossil remnants to be seen all the way to the top ! Although the last mile is difficult due to the steepness and loose rock, I would highly recommend this hike due to the magnificent views once you reach the peak. A helmet is recommended.
