Very steep start that does a quick part of the MST then double back down. Intense!

Rewarding hike for the death climb at the beginning. Trail gets a little overgrown in the medow but still fun.

I did the thing backwards. Easy part first on a 90 degree day in July. Ridiculously easy walk in the park, omg then got tough. Fun trail. Be prepared for bugs and muddy feet.

Great hike. Trail to the top of the mountain was very steep and icy. Easy from that point forward other than the deep snow and eater covered bear meadow trail. Some fantastic views from the ridge.

Almost completely flat except for the initial ascent and subsequent descent. If it rains, the lower levels flood pretty bad.

easy to moderate trail- lots of wildlife (including mosquitoes!). Done this trail several times in recent years- best in spring early summer- muddy but lovely wildflowers.

bear meadows is a hard yet rewarding trail to do. The views are completely worth it.
