Trail from Alpine Visitor Center up rock stairs is very short, but due to high altitude and stair-climbing, is difficult for some. Trail is very crowded depending on crowds at the Visitor Center.

If you drive up to the Alpine lodge, which is very worthwhile, then you'll feel obligated to take this short walk up the stairs to the 12,000 ft mark. It's not a hike, but a walk up the stairs and with the elevation it is challenging. The views are simply spectacular.
