8.1.18 This hike is so awesome. Plenty of wild berries every where. The exposure gives you awesome views but come early. The view from this ridge and St Helens looks best at sunrise. Still plenty of wildflowers and its cool, i had a long sleeve. I didn't really encounter bugs and it wasn't crowded. Plenty of time for myself. Completed in 7.5 hrs with time to eat and take pics. The ridge is narrow in some areas and gets my adrenaline going. The trail is not well marked but the trail is noticeable if you look. The ridge is fun and the peak at the tip has lots of loose rocks so be very careful if you want to venture out. I did and the photo op is epic. I am definitely coming back
