Amazing but incredibly difficult on the body. A rocky ascend to the top with an amazing view is only about a third of the trek. The hike down the backside and around is the other two. Beautiful scenery that changes as you go. Blueberry bushes for snacking up and down. Recommended start is 10-11 as it takes 6-8 hours.

Beautiful hike. We were up and down in just over 5 hours - didn't rest much at the top because it was chilly and started to rain. Amazing views, especially of 10 mile pond on the back side. Saw a moose and a rock ptarmigan. We wore running shoes - something more substantial would be more comfortable. Lots of rocky terrain. Highly recommended - loved this hike start to finish!

Very worth it! Took us 7 hours to complete it, exactly 3.5 to reach the summit and 3.5 to loop around and descend. You get a great view before you come down the backside of the mountain and a great view as you climb. The steep loose boulders at the beginning of the climb is not as tough as you would think and most people in my group found that part the easiest of the hike. It is the descent that is the most difficult I found.

Don't be discouraged at the elevation! When you make it through the few brutal miles, you will likely be above the clouds...simply spectacular!

Stunning trail! We were lucky to get sunny weather the whole time. Incredible views. Part of the hike through scree and snow before hitting a false summit and then the true summit (really more of a flat area). The whole trail has interesting things to see, and don't miss out on the fresh spring water at the small lake/pond on the backside of the mountain coming down.

Amazing trail. Sometimes when you get to the top, you are above the clouds

Very tough and long. Lots of loose rock to climb up. Great views at the top though. Make sure to bring lots of water and layers.
