The basin was snow free 6/29. A long drive to get to the TH but the views were totally worth it. The elevation gain is spread out nicely and never steep so I would rate it as moderate. A great backpacking destination with several options for exploring. The 6 mile spur dirt road signed Irongate Trailhead is a bit rough in a few sections but is not a problem if you have a high clearance vehicle.

Unbelievable views at the top! I feel like I’m in Montana. I also recommend windy peak and Mt Bonaparte if your in the area.

Great little hike with some awesome waterfalls at the end. We bumped into a buck on our way up. The trail is right off of the Cascade Pass Trail.

I've hiked this area many times. Great views and wonderful open valleys.
