Great hike, amazing view definitely not for the faint of heart. Steady incline all the way up but with the altitude your body is working very hard and that makes this hike strenuous. 4 hours up to you top, then 2 hours back to tram. Great view at the top!

Great hike from devils slide. It’s around 16 miles round trip from devils but it’s more challenging. I’ve hiked the peak a few times and it always takes my breath away

Third time doing this hike and it never ceases to amaze me. Had the great fortune of reaching the summit and seeing snow on the trees, like a Christmas card. This time of year it's great to hike with valley fog, warm to cold weather, and lots of surprises, like the strong winds and freezing temps at the top. Great workout hike and the views are always stunning. Wellman Divide is a great place to stop for a snack/drink and scenery. It's about 2 miles from the top. If you go this time of year remember that the temperatures at the top can be below freezing, even when it's in the 70's at the bottom. Ranger said it averages 40 degrees colder on top then in Palm Springs. Also remember it's dark at 5:30pm now. The tram ride is almost worth going all by itself. Go and enjoy but hike smart.

I’ve done 5 of the 6 pack peaks, this one is the easiest on the list. (Gorgonio left) I still would recommend it for only experienced hikers. Stop at the rangers station first to acquire a permit. Have a great time ....

The trail offers you amount of beautiful sceneries. You can camp and hike different trails. Good for backpacking/camping. There are little water and streams make sure to have a water filter to replenish water if overnight camping and along the hiking trails. Bear containers or bear bags are needed. Prepared your gear(s) and packed light. Carried your waste back. Permits are required for overnight camping. Amazing..!!!
