Outstanding hike. First few miles are wooded with intermittent clearings which offer beautiful views. Nice grade (used for horses as well). We encountered a group of mountain goats at the pass. Reasonable scramble to the second ridge line if you take the western face ascent. Problem was, we couldn't find a good way up the final ascent and had to turn back after some serious climbing was involved. Think we should have gone a bit further to the south before heading up. Otherwise, you could cut across the north face at about 3 miles in, and scramble up to the ridge and follow to the summit from the east (that's what we'll try the next time). All-in-all a great hike.

Great hike, can make a loop of this to Our Lake, which is what we did-but it was a bit though to maneuver the boulders and scree. We were rewarded with amazing views of the lake and about 15 rams!

It's the Bob, and it's amazing. You can't really go wrong hiking in the Bob Marshall but if you are after views and a feeling of accomplishment, this trail will offer your that. Take lots of water, and a good camera. Parts of the trail are rocky so make sure you have good tread and start early!
