Mountain views, wildflowers, solitude The road to the trailhead is a bit scary but the trail is well worth the effort. Not many take this route which parallels the more popular Skyline Divide Trail to the west. When we took this hike in August, the trail led us through wildflowers taller then our knees. There were interesting volcanic rock formations and lots of snow-melt ponds. Also do not forget to bring the bug spray as we were plagued by hordes of misquitos.
