The trailhead starts right from the communication towers. There are many trails along the ridge which end up at the same place - follow the most developed trail to prevent further erosion. After 2.5 km you will reach the summit and have a great view of the surrounding area. If you want to continue walking along the ridge, follow one of the main trails towards the second, lower peak. The trail can be faint at times. To continue on from the second peak to the third, you will have to descend out of the alpine. This requires some very moderate bushwacking to the other side where you will ascend towards the third peak. There isn't much of a trail at some points, so pick your own way if necessary. The third peak offers the best view of Whitehorse. From here, turn around and follow the same route back. Although this hike is close to town, there is evidence of bear activity such as bear droppings and digging marks. Act as you would on any other trail, making noise at intervals so as not to surprise a bear when you climb over a crest.

Great views of Whitehorse, Marsh Lake and Lake Laberge as well as south view towards Carcross. Definitely a worthwhile hike!
