BEAUTIFUL hike. My watch said it was 9 miles. Started at 8am, made it to the summit of the second pass by noon. Went with my mom who lives at sea level, but otherwise great shape. She had a hard time with the second pass. Gorgeous views the entire way. Lots of water for the pups to drink.
I give it four stars because some asshole left their human shit wrapped in paper towels on a pile of pinecones at a camp site that you walk right through and my dog ate it. So whoever you are... your shit you left behind is no longer there. Also. You’re a piece of shit too. Please learn backpacking etiquette before doing this again.
