Narrow path with lots of horse poop. Be sure to wear long pants because the grass is long in places. The lake at the top is pretty, but quite brown and not very inviting for a swim. We saw bear and wolf tracks, which was pretty cool. The wildflowers and general vegetation were spectacular. The flies were bad (as I imagine they are throughout these parts in summer), so bring ya’ DEET. Not overly strenuous, we made it up in an hour and a half.
