Went on this trail with just normal hiking boots and double layered clothing. Made it up fine but HIGHLY recommend spikes and poles. Very beautiful 360 degree view at the top but due to the wind was only up there for about 30 minutes because it was so cold. Can’t wait to do this one again in the summer.

Unreal view as a reward to this tough hike. Highly recommend you wear really comfortable shoes as you’re climbing vertically for the whole hike. Not a flat spot on the trail. Well worth it though.

This morning probably wasn’t the best time to hike this trail. Quite a bit of snow midway to the top. About 3-4 inches and was still coming down. Very steep and rocky trail. Lots of stepping up particularly for a short person like myself. Trekking poles helped. The way down was very tricky with the slippery snow. We made it a little beyond the midway point any turned around due to the snow. Will try this one again in dry weather.

Made the ascent on a Thursday morning with clear conditions, only saw a few people the whole day. As many have noted this hike is extremely physically demanding. The trail is essentially straight up the mountain, in most spots you will need both of your hands to climb by grabbing on roots and rocks. Toward the top the views become stunning, however this section becomes quite rocky and a requires a high level of cognitive focus in some spots. The trail splits off into multiple paths in some areas, but they all seem to reconnect at one point or another – with that said, be mindful to not loose the trail, it can be vague at times. Overall really amazing hike with unreal views from the top, if you're willing to put in the work it is absolutely worth it.

Hiked this on 8/17/2019. Was cloudy and the summit was in a cloud layer. This is a tough hike. It is not for beginner or the feint of heart. Myself and my hiking buddy are in excellent shape but this hike was demanding. Logged 4.5 miles on my Apple Watch. Trail is a bit hard to find/follow in parts.

Amazing hike. Very steep right from the beginning. Take lot of water. We took about 2.5 litres per person which still wasn’t enough.

This is a difficult hike with some scramble as you gain 3,000+ in ~1.7 miles but worth the views as you move through the upper reaches of the Mtn. Bring water and climbing poles aid in the decent. I started at 6:45AM to beat the heat and was back down comfortably by 10:30. Would liked to of spent more time on top but the bugs were in full attack mode. I plan to do this again in early October to enjoy the cool fall air and colors. I would stay off this route after a heavy rain or wet period as the trail would be slippery and hazardous. Part of the route is up a dry creek bed. Hope this helps, Cheers
