I really enjoyed this hike! It’s a pretty gentile decent while you follow the PCT passed all three alpine lakes. After that it turns steeper as you get off the PCT and head for the ski lift. The ski lift is not operational so you can either do it as an out and back (11.8mi) or head down the black diamond under the lift. I chose the latter and scrambled and slid down the hill that is covered in scrub brush. I would mark this trail as more moderate to hard. Especially since the lift isn’t running to bring you to the top so you can just walk down hill the entire time. It’s roughly 8 miles of you choose to head down under the ski lift!
