A steep hike up to an absolutely amazing view point

Great hike that gives you a good little workout. Fairly steady uphill climb the whole way but lots of changing terrain and well marked so it doesn’t feel like you’re just grinding away. There was still too much snow up top to get to the lakes so I’ll be back later on in the year to get the view!

Took me almost 2 hours to get up and just under an hour to come down. Definitely need hiking boots and wished I would’ve brought my hiking sticks.

From the road you want the trail on the left that has a white marker that says “12” on it - park & walk up there and you’ll find signs to guide you.

Definitely need waterproof hiking boots - lots of loose ruble, pinecones and snow up top (lots of it). Plus, it requires walking through some creeks and muddy spots. The snow up top was quite deep and coming down was a bit slippy, so you need to be careful of where you’re stepping.

Hiking to the lake was generally all up hill with fairly consistent markers, but closer to the top it splits into different trails so pay close attention to signs that indicate which trail you’re on (you want the one that has the “M” on it).

Unbelievable view from the lookout. Used snow shoes for the first time near the top and it was lots of fun. Fell down a lot coming back down in the snow (I’m relatively inexperienced) but it was super rewarding and an all around great experience. Took me almost 4 hours up at a leisurely pace and 1.5 down.

Good solid hike. Prepare for a climb though. When I went there was snow close to the top. There is markers on the trail, but it can be easy to accidentally make it onto other trails.
