Don't get me wrong, Francis Peak is amazing. The view is breathtaking. It's a great hike, but DO NOT TAKE THE ROUTE ON THIS MAP! The Wolverine Ridgeline Trail does not exist at all. Take another route up. Adams Canyon is the most popular; I went up Bair Creek Canyon and that was a very strenuous but enjoyable trail. Just make sure you take plenty of water because it's easy to underpack and run out.
