Nice hike up the mountain. They have cleared the fallen trees, so easy passage. Beetle damage is pretty severe in some spots, but still great views. Took a 9 year old and 10 year old - they were able to make it with some stops.

Beautiful! A lot of downed trees across the trail, but super beautiful!

Nice trail, moderate elevation gain. The tail can be busy with hikers.
