Nicely developed campgrounds. Little boring on the way up since it was an ohv trail but the way back down on the pct was amazing! Definitly worth an overnighter. I hit the trail at about 1:00pm and made it to the top in time for sunset

Though it was tough, this was such a worthwhile hike. There is a campground at the top, but no water. We saw no other people on the trail and the views are spectacular.

We did this trail today for the second time. The grade is fine and the trail is easy to follow. We prefer to follow the PCT a bit longer than this map suggests, but we still end up at the junction with the fire road that takes us to the top.

Easy to hike, easy to run. However some of the trails are cut off by fallen trees. Overall easy for a great scenic view of the canyon.

This hike took us about 5 hours round trip. There were a couple of points where we had to negotiate over/under some very large trees that had fallen across the trail. There was also still a few patches of snow here and there that had packed into some pretty slippery ice. Just be careful and wear good boots and you should be fine. This trail must have been gorgeous before the fire that tore threw there in 2009.

I began at 8:45am & hiked about 3.2 miles in before the trail became too icy & steep that it seemed a little unsafe to continue. Gusty winds made it more challenging also. Beautiful hike from desert up to the forest as you near the summit. I've completed this hike earliest this year even though it was also inclimate weather with clouds, no rain thoth but felt like you were IN the clouds. Very worth it. plus you're on the Pacific Crest Trail!
