Had a few hours to kill after my buddy tweaked his shoulder climbing. Nice short little jaunt and cool view of Leavenworth. Sadly you can't see any of the truly impressive mountains like the enchantments to the south. If able (and they are snow free) I would recommend the higher elevation hikes like colchuck & Stuart over this any day.

Went Sunday March 5. Was sunny and quite warm and with the weekend hiking/snowshoe traffic, the trail was in difficult shape. Fairly narrow in some sections and if you stepped off the trail you could find yourself down a foot or so in the snow. Made the hike more difficult, but some nice views to be had along the way and beautiful (and icy) at the top. Would have appreciated a decent technical pair of snowshoes for the trek, although not necessary, just watch your step.

Really fun hike! Went over the weekend. Although I took snowshoes I didn't need them as the trail was pretty packed down. The trail is narrow at times.

Lots of up for the first half and lots of down on the way back. Nice maintained trail. Just the right amount of challenge. There's is lots of exposure and not easy in extreme heat.

Narrow path made it hard to pass other hikers. View was beautiful at the top.
