June 3, 2017. Lots of snow still on trail. Had to turn back in our Runner. Might be passable with only two wheels.

easist 14er I've ever done, the road to the upper trailhead can be tricky but once you get there it's a walk to the top.

Scenically, not worth the 9+ mile slog on the Jeep trail. The only portion that can be classified as hiking/climbing is the final pitch - a ~.5 mile scramble across a ridge and an ascent up the tales slope.
If possible, drive to the 11k trailhead at the creek crossing (4wd a must!). This saves a few miles of very rough walking and some elevation gain.
