Easy/moderate hike until the last quarter mile to Mount Raymond's Summit, which gets steep and requires a couple easy scrambles. Beautiful view at the peak!

No snow. First 1.5 m is a nice moderate incline. It then mellows out and becomes steep the last .5 m. There are so many wildflowers right now. Incredibly beautiful trail.
