Awesome summit. We got to the park at about 8:20 and bear lake parking was full, the park and ride was easy though. Great look outs at spots below the tree line and amazing views above tree line. Marmot and Pika were everywhere. Fun climb to the summit, rocky and steep but nothing crazy. Had to race a storm down that rolled in as we were descending, but we were prepared. No snow on the trail anymore. I highly recommend this trail.
