Starts off as a nice leisurely trail with nice lakeside portions. Last portions includes 1 or 2 more difficult rock scrambling. Very wide summit area. Make sure you spot your return path when summitting as it is not very obvious when going back. Also, I felt pretty stupid missing the Noonmark sign at the 4-way stop (I thought it was a 3-way and went towards Dix for a while), but that's probably just me.

Really beautiful hike. We went on a clear sunny day, and the view at the summit was amazing. Really nice places at the peak to have lunch and relax before heading down.

Make sure you have microspikes or even crampons if you're hiking this in March/April. There's still a ton of snow and ice, and can get seriously dangerous as there's steep, exposed parts. We saw some people with running shoes attempting this hike... bad idea.
