Did this on a Saturday, and despite sharing a trailhead with Belford/Oxford, the hike was pleasant and quiet above treeline. Loved the scramble, but beware the loose gravel and huge steps up and down.

Saw a few dogs struggle with this one. There are water crossings for them to cool off in, but maybe consider if they can handle it before bringing them.
