First to Review

Fun first time hike up this trail. Starts off steep with a few breaks but pretty consistently steep. Followed it all the way to the Watson Path and took that to the summit. Decided not to descend the same way due to its steepness and we needed a water refill at the Madison Spring Hut and then took the Valley Way Trail, Lower Bruin, Brookside, Kelton Crag and Howker Ridge Trail back to a car spot at the Howker Ridge trailhead. Overall a nice trail I would do again with great views going up just before the cojoining with the Howker Ridge Trail and above treeline.
