nice hike with great views the whole way. There are two ways up front the parking lot, I recommend the one to the right of the bathroom. it is steeper but you get get to the ridge and views faster.

This was a fantastic trail, a little hot since you are the entire time under the sun. We saw sheep, marmots, lots of birds, butterflies and quite a few wild flowers.
