I did this a few days ago and the climb up Mount Van Cott was beautiful. Even the ridge past Van Cott was fun and had an established trail to follow. However once it was time to begin the loop back down Dry Creek the trail became very narrow and hard follow. Most difficult of all was that it led to a field of stinging nettle. For this time of season, it may be best to wait for the vegetation to be less overgrown.
