As someone else mentioned, the yerba buena trail is very overgrown. I got around the first small peak, but didn't have confidence in where the trail was to finish up getting to the peak of Mckinely. Either way, still a nice hike with a gradual, consistent uphill.

trail is good until you get to gold creek saddle (where the yerba buena helipad is), but from there very overgrown trail with parts of it washed out on a very steep face. I wish I'd had a machete to cut the chaparral.
