Not many views until you get above 3000 ft. Trail was wet in spots, but no real muddy spots. Very rewarding views at the top.

It was a very challenging trail, it took 4 hours to get up in 3 hours to get down. Snow shoes are a must with the snowy and icy conditions. Over all it was a great hike and I would definitely do it again.

Interestingly, I used this trailhead by accident...I was actually aiming for the primary trailhead and the ridge trail. About 2/3 of the way up, I'm asking my wife and daughter "Where are the views that were supposed to be all along this route?" But, even so, we weren't disappointed. And yes, the last .7 mi is a killer. But well worth the views at the top!

Spectacular climb to the summit of Giant Mountain. Its a steep and long climb but breathtaking at the conclusion.

Challenging but a lot of fun and entirely worth the effort! The views from the top of Giant are breathtaking.
