Fantastic hike. Affords tons and tons of views of Kirk wood to the east along with sentinels and to the west silver lake. Plenty of varying vegetation with several types of flowers. Easy to follow trail.

insane views, decent climb to the top :) wear shoes with good traction, plenty of water and you will have a great time. not much snow left, just a few medium patches. love watching Kirkwood from above.

Great hike with beautiful views. The wild flowers were amazing. Our 5 month old Lab German Shepard loved the snow patches. They do cover some of the trail, it makes it a little difficult to get around but doable. Would recommend going in the AM because it gets pretty warm. But great hike!

Awesome trail with great views of the mountains and Silver lake... You get a few peeks of Caples as well. One of my favorites for years with my boys,

One of the most beautiful trails I've been on! So many wild flowers on the very scenic route. Will definitely do this one again.
