Amazing every year

This was an excellent hike. It took us about 3 hours to get to the peak, and 2 hours to get back. There were gorgeous 360 degree views from the peak. A pair of mountain goats was waiting for us at the summit.

After you park, there is a 1.8 mile hike of switchbacks to get to the trailhead. Bikers can bike this first section. The last 1.1 miles is above the treeline and involves climbing multiple peaks before reaching the highest one: Byers Peak.
