Great trail.

Awesome hike today. Beautiful weather and lots of sunshine. Definitely better than the front side of Flat Top.

Amazing hike! Definitely challenging and I would say overall more challenging than the front of flattop. But those views are gorgeous so definitely worth the climb. Following the loop and coming down was very difficult and great quad workout!!

Great hike. Calf burner, but the views are worth it. Ended up following the trail back from the peak rather than completing the loop as the return trail wasn’t obvious enough for my attention span.

Great afternoon hike with amazing views of Sleeping Lady. Not very difficult, kids can do it, but it is a nice uphill challenge. Even for May, the trail is clean and dry. The last leg still has some snow. The path itself is fairly narrow and has loose rocks so good shoes are ideal. Will definitely make this a regular hike.

Great hike after work today. Careful on the road up because it is starting to get icy from water flowing across it. Lower part of the new trail is a bit muddy. Mother black bear with two yearlings in the bowl to the east of the new trail and the saddle. They have been in the area for a couple of weeks doing their bear thing. They were in a stand off with a curious dog. Ran into the dog owners at the trail head searching for their lost dog. Hope they found him.

Super pretty hike! A bit challenging sometimes, so be careful. The summit is amazing! So many awesome views from every angle!
