Moderate grades with a few steeper sections, the trail climbs steadily through forest until you reach the ridge line near Squaw Lake. The shrubs and berry plants were fully colored up in deep reds and yellows, making this a particularly beautiful ridge walk. You can see cathedral Rock from the parking lot, but it then disappears as you walk through the forest and for the first mile or so of ridge walk. Then you come over a rise and it pops into view between trees. It is an incredible view of the peak over the small ridge line lakes. We were also able to find solitude on a beautiful fall weekend, seeing only 2 other hikers.
