Killer hike, and I mean killer as in awesome and killer as in the last half mile to the summit almost killed me. There are many amazing views throughout. Take your time and make sure you stop and enjoy Gods amazing creation along the way! Hiking poles or a good stick highly recommended. I left mine at the trailhead; it’s all yours. BTW, the .6 mile road off of 168 that leads to the trailhead has signs saying private road and no trespassing. The road is owned by the packing station but it’s government property. You can indeed drive up that road and park just before the trailhead.
