Hike was awesome. We actually got off course wanting to go climb tall rocks and take pics. I took my sons and there friend. All of them kept up like champs. Went all the way up to Bluff Lake gorgeous views JUST EPIC! Checked out the 440 year old Lodgepine 11 stories high! Did the hike in about 4 hours. Will return to venture farther!
