A killer trail! I climbed it in 29 June 2019. I only made it to the Lookout Tower at the 8200-8300ft summit before you head to Iceberg Peak. Extremely windy so before you start the climb up the Rocky Mountain I would definitely layer up or put a wind breaker on. Other than the steep accent up to the lookout, this trail is actually really easy to follow and hike.
