Only one car in the parking lot & a nice hike in on an old logging road. Virtually no bugs & not too warm although those w/climbing gear looked tired & hot. Great views of Mt. Baker & lunch after 2 hrs w/view of the ascent to the ridge. A steep rocky climb, but only 30 min, & you're on top of the ridge w/great views. About the same time to get back but only 5 cars in the lot. A great hike.

Agreed with reviews. Hard up and up trail. Don't even think about going with out mega bug repellent. The flies are brutal and they bite.

Great view at the top but the climb up is a bit boring and there's lots of big trees to climb over. Took about an hour and a half up
