What an amazing view! The incline varies from gentle to steep, but the last 1/2 mile was so worth it! There was snow on the north face of Battle Ax and we were careful not to lose the trail. Otherwise it was very well marked and easy to follow. Our 9- and 11-year-old kids even managed it with only a little jelly bean bribery. The road to Elk Lake is pretty rough and I recommend high clearance if not 4-wheel-drive.
