A demanding hike with great views. This is a hike with good views of the Gallatin range and the Bridger mountains. The first quarter (halfway to the peak) is entirely wooded. Dense forest with great views of waterfalls and streams. The trail intersects with tributaries and smaller streams, sometimes there are bridges sometimes there are not. You can cross the streams with ease even without bridges but you may want to bring an extra pair of socks in case you slip on a rock!

This stretch of the trail is the best of Hyalite canyon. Traffic drops off a lot after the lake. Path was still covered in snow in two parts as of mid-July.

Very snowy, waist high towards the peak made us turn around early. Lots of ice climbers and skiers out and about.
