Beautiful hike the whole way! Moderate trail, a little rocky but nothing too difficult. Saw some elk at the top which was cool! Parking lot was pretty busy with people going down to the river, so getting there early would be best.

Great hike!! The switchbacks were a killer for me personally but it was well worth it at the peak.

Amazing hike. Still had snow patches at the top, so some of the trail at the top was pretty muddy. The trail is pretty rocky, so wearing real hiking shoes is a must. Very little traffic for a Saturday morning. You will definitely work your legs, but the view from the peak is simply amazing. worth the hike. 100%.

Had a good hike. Great views not only at the top but also along the way. Trail is pretty rocky the whole way so you have to watch your step. Also encountered a little snow and ice near the top. Parking lot was full when I got out, so it's best to start early.

Gradual rocky ascent which became muddy then snowy. The views were incredible. The only way to describe is.. wow. Easy to follow trail. Just follow the path and footprints. At the top of Wilson’s mt sign, we took a left and went another 10 mins or so and the view was absolutely incredible. Def recommend using trekking poles. The altitude takes adjustment esp if you are from the east coast like us. We live at sea level & the air is way thinner over here. Starting at 4,457ft & climbing to 7039’ takes some wind & stamina. Again.. completely worth it at the top. Descent was muddy, slippery & trekking poles make it much better on the knees.
