First to Review

Great hike. The elevation gain is considerably and the trail is overall rocky so wear appropriate footwear. Trail was in good condition. A little wet in some places from snow melt but nothing you couldn’t easily walk around. The trail at higher elevations is covered by snow in a couple of places, so poles and snow spikes are helpful. Some skeeters and other pesky insects along the way. Plenty of water sources along the way. Filter water as you feel appropriate. I used 2 liters for the whole hike. We didn’t go to Dick’s Lake but instead opted to go off trail for a fairly difficult rock level 3/4 rock scramble up to summit Dick’s Peak. Difficult scramble up to the summit but the effort and risk was well rewarded with an incredible view.
