Did this one on Jul-29-2020 and took around 6.0 hours round-trip taking long breaks for pictures and videos. Not terribly uphill but a bit on the longer side to get to the peak. Honestly, the views are worth the trek but are better along the ridge right before the actual peak as the true 'summit' has a super small incline which makes it tough to get that perfect angle vantage point. That being said it's still a fantastic hike and recommended under second place to Shelly. PS: Make sure to pack enough extra water as most of the trail is devoid of much outside of still ponds.

Great trail for the most part, there are some places where it's easy to head off on a deer trail but in general fairly hard to get lost. Kudos to the trail team that went through recently and circumnavigated the muddiest parts. Good views, take time to enjoy them!

The trail is AWESOME!! A long 8.8 miles to the top for sure (the extra hot day didn’t help I’m sure) but so worth getting to the top rather than just stopping at the lake (only about 1.6 miles in to the hike). It’s a taxing uphill battle for sure but beautiful ridge walking once you get up there! The way up before the lake is all walking through a little overgrown greenage.

Do a quick slog up Raymond Peak since you’ll be up there.
