With the snow and being short of time, only walked the first two miles and then turned around. Other trail users were skiers (7), snowshoes (6), hikers (5). Totally coming back1

This was a nice hike - did it in early June and was subdued by clouds/fog towards the end of the climb. No views at the summit, consequently, but bounding down the still-deep snow on the way down was good fun.

One of the best views of my life! I'm 49 now, and I was there at age 15

It was a breathtaking and majestic stop on our way towards Alta meadow. My boyfriend and I had a brief picnics there as well. Well worth it!

Started at Wolverton on this out and back adventure. I hiked to Panther Gap where the view was great. First half of the trail had no snow however, the conditions changed the second half. The snow was covering the trail so you had to rely on the markers which slowed me down.

Nice trail run. Came in from Wolverton and out via High Sierra trail from the Mehrten creek bivouac site.
