This trail starts in a dirt pull off on the left side shortly after the Switzer Falls pull off. Be sure to have your Angeles Crest Adventure Pass before you start out. The trail starts in a stream bed and a quarter of a mile in its uphill pretty much the rest of the way. Just before you get Strawberry Saddle theres some steep switchbacks.

Tough as hell. Lots of rock climbing, but so worth it once at the top.

I think we accidentally ended up on the "mountaineers route" that Carola mentions below--but it seemed like the only route up. The last .25-.5 miles is a steep but fun scramble. Nothing too dangerous, but not for those afraid of heights. Bring bugspray, the bugs were a nuisance.

My GPS put this at closer to 7miles and 3000ft.

Beautiful, but strenuous trail with some scrambling on the mountaineers route. Changing landscape around every corner. You will be surrounded by the high desert and when turning to the shadow site, you will find yourself in a beautiful meadow followed with huge pine trees. Worth every effort!
