Lots of bears! Ran into 2 on the way up, one on the road and one on the trail. Bring lots of bear spray!

Beautiful trail. The most difficult thing is the road getting there. I beat up my Subaru and would only recommend going if you have an suv or truck. The trail was incredible saw no signs of bears just some deer and 2 other hikers. Didn’t make it to the summit but will try again later.

It is not an easy WALK to the top. It was 3 1/2 miles to the peak and it is elevated at the last half mile. FYI there were fresh bear tracks the entire way up and do not recommend anyone to go up there unless having a firearm. The trail is not clear at all but is nice and quiet, total nature and underrated trail.

This is an easy walk with beautiful views. The road in is a bit of a rough drive and one lane at some points. Nice photo ops all the way.

Crazy 4 wheel drive to get up to the trail, fun! Beautiful trail, flowers... well worth the hike

I'm confused by your rating of "Easy" and your stated elevation gain of only 900 feet. I have lived in Livingston for 30 years and so this peak and trail are well known to me. Me and my family climbed it just yesterday. The trail is about 4 miles each way as you say. But the elevation gain is more than 3000 feet. The last .7 miles from the saddle to the peak gains 1000 feet which is fairly steep by trail standards and is not "easy". Are we talking about the same hike? Gorgeous views from the peak and the wild flowers alone are worth the effort.

Really nice trail but super remote. I was pretty nervous the whole time being a solo female with two pups. I forgot my bear spray (for the first time ever) and of course saw a bear right at the end near the parking lot. Take bear spray and a friend. Beautiful trail though!!

beautiful flowers this time of year! wish we could've had more time to summit the peak but the views were still amazing at our lower elevation hike :)

Beware, the drive to the trailhead is 11 miles from downtown Livingston. The drive took 45 minutes in a lifted truck because the road was so rough and rocky. Once we got to the trailhead we only walked a half mile before turning back because we saw lots of bear tracks in the snow. Although, there were some beautiful views along the way be prepared for a serious drive and bears.
