It took me three times to complete this, once because of snow, altitude sickness, and finally I took my time and didn't rush and man, was it worth every second and every trip. The best time to hike this trail is when the flowers are blooming because the views and scents are astounding. We started out early and hiked into the early morning to watch the sunrise. Even if you do not make it to the top, watching the sun suddenly brighten the sky and fall on those peaks is worth the experience. Even if you do not want to hike the trail, there is a beautiful valley of flowers by the parking lot. 10/10. Wish this was a hidden gem.

Constant incline, but it's absolutely worth the view. Also, be sure to bring bug spray if you decide to go later during the evening, the mosquitoes are relentless.

The blooming wildflowers greet you almost the entire trail. Fantastic trail to enjoy them. 360 view of the environs at the summit.

Easy trail to follow all the way up! It's steep, but not to crazy. We took little breaks but eventually made it in a little over 2 hrs. If you're better with elevation than I am, it could be done sooner I'm sure. There were a few trail runners heading to the top.
