Well maintained trail. Stunning views of Castle Crags and Mt. Shasta. Some patches of mosquitos along way (note to self: bring repellent next time :-). Was here on a weekday, crossed paths with approximately a dozen other hikers. Highly recommend.

The hike is strenuous, but the trail is well maintained and the views are worth the effort. Clear days afford breathtaking views views of Mt. Shasta to the north.

The farther I got along this trail, the steeper it got, the better the view and the more pictures I took !!
Can't wait to go back !!

This hike was probably one of the hardest hikes I've done but worth it! The views are amazing! Bring lots of water!

amazing views... incredibly strenuous, but well worth the views. if you go past the top of the hikes look out spot be prepared for a bit of a climb (not bad). wear good shoes and stock up water at the spring on your way up.

It is not for the out of shape hiker but is a whole lot of fun!
