One of the most scenic hikes on the parkway. There is a bit of a trail but quite often it will just end and you’ll have to count on ribbons and cairns to guide your way. There are a couple of routes once you get higher so choose which one is more comfortable. Some have more scrambling than others but please watch your step. The slog up the scree will take some time but once you reach the saddle it’s very easy going and the scenery completely opens up. Lakes, waterfalls and glaciers are in abundance and it’ll be hard to just focus on just one part of it. Most incredible. Enjoy !
