Long distance. Pack enough food and water. Encountered snow, hike along a stream, steep inclines in parts, not much shade in places. Cobalt itself is relatively small and sheltered. Take swim or have a nap before heading back. Grab a beer or ice cream at the nearby store at the end as a reward. You’ll need it.

Loved all the Beargrass this year and the wildflowers the last 1/3 of the hike were beautiful!
