Hard. I recommend you get used to the elevation first before going all the way up. The body is getting less oxygen so everything- moving climbing hiking lifting- are harder. Lots of wildlife on this trail.

Even though it rained on our hike in, this was an excellent hike and a great experience. Breaking it up into a 3 day backpacking trip made for good acclimatization and very enjoyable trek.

Difficult. If the distance doesn't get you then the elevation gain at the end might. If you feel good going into the final ascent, make sure altitude sickness isn't slowly settling in.

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HIKE the entire way through. We started at the New Pass Trail to the peak and saw Mt. Whitney.

We changed up the way back and took the gnarly switchbacks to and through The Cottonwood lakes, all the way back to the car at the campsite.

If weather is good (absolutely NO snow or ice) I highly recommend looping through Cottonwood lakes.

All in all a great an exhausting day :)

2nd 14ner in a week. Much more peaceful than Whitney. Less crowds, great camping. Caught some fish. Hiked to Lake 3, set up camp. Summit the next day. Saw a herd of Bighorns on the way to summit. We went the Old Army pass, shorter, and the trail was in good shape.

Took 2 days (July 24-25, 2015) - The weather was perfect both days. We camped at High Lake and started up New Army Pass before sunrise. Views were stunning all the way to the summit - Long Lake, Cottonwood Lakes, great Western Divide and Mount Whitney to name a few. Made it from the base of New Army to the summit in about 3 hours. Well worth it to hike this 14er.

Great views and a good hike to the top. Mostly class 1 with a very small section of class 2. On our way down we saw about 14 or so big horn sheep. We base camped at Long Lake another beautiful place.

You have to put in some pretty significant mileage for a dayhike – about 6 hours up and hours down in August. The scenery around the luxuriant grasslands of Horseshoe Meadow and the Cottonwood Lakes Basin is gorgeous.

Easy hike through Cottonwood Lakes and New Army Pass, but the painful part was hiking through scree field from the base of Mt. Langley to its summit. Beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife viewing and good fishing.
