Up and Back via Crawford Path measured 9.4 in the winter, on my GPS.

The trail was in super good condition for hiking, almost like a snow-packed sidewalk. Its a long gradual, moderate incline. Approaching views get better, then you hit Pierce. The world gets small, everything looks amazing, and its time to drop into the alpine trees for 1.1 miles and zig-zag up the side of Eisenhower.

View from Eisenhower are fantastic. They will energize you for the inevitable climb down. This is one of my favorite hikes.
