nice trail, steep in sections, but the view is probably amazing without a solid cloud deck starting below the trailhead. We'll just have to do it again.

Made it to 2nd false summit and decided to turn back due to large clouds, rain & hail. By the time I got back to the 1st false summit it was clear again. The clouds did provide a rainbow into the eagle river valley. Trekking poles and wind jacket were very helpful.

Made it to the first false peak and then it started to rain pretty bad. I would suggest to do this hike on a dry day.

This is probably one of my favorite hikes in the Eagle River area! Pretty strenuous, especially if it's hot out, but just keep at it and the top is in sight.

Once you get to the top of the first peak, you have the opportunity to continue hiking out to other peaks and possibly even connect up to the Mt. Baldy trail.

One of the more difficult hikes I have done. Steep and strenuous. Be sure to pack water and snacks! Great view and there is an Alaska flag posted at the end!
