It goes well but pause in the middle Beautiful view of the entire hike Warning, a good part is muddy in winter which makes the descent very dangerous cat very steep. Remember to cover yourself (windy)

Hard work to start, but the views are amazing! It's not 16 km. Doc says 2 hours up.

This ones quite a challenge but well worth it for the 360 views of the lakes and mountains. Not much shelter on the way up and can get pretty windy, take a windbreaker jacket for sure! Well worth it
