I would give this 4.75 stars if I could. There were a few spots where the trail was slightly hard to follow. Those were the only downsides though. Great views of Adams, Hood, and a sneak peek of Helens after Horseshoe Meadow. We saw plenty of late-blooming asters as well. The trail is very exposed sun-wise so we were glad to have waited for a cooler day. Lightly trafficked...we only saw one backpacker on the trail. Like a previous reviewer, we clocked about 12 miles round trip.
