This trail was ok, we went up on a cloudy day so it didn’t offer much. We can imagine that perhaps they payoff would be better on a clear day with better views. Fairly busy trail, very steep at the top section.

Nice trail. Some great views. Not too much elevation gain so perfect for beginners.

Amazing day with amazing friends. The only drawback was the end of the trail was very abrupt and many hikers were confused if the reddish rocks were actually the end or not.

Wonderful hike through forest, past the historical ruins of the old lodge, and up into the alpine. Really enjoyed the views, and the excellent trail.
