Length: 19.2 mi • Est. Multi-day
The road works its way up several switchbacks before entering the valley floor. Along the way you will pass by several ruins of old buildings. The trail will reach Como Lake just before the tree line. This is where motorized vehicles must stop. The trail continues its climb up the valley and passes several more beautiful alpine lakes. Above you to your right will be the imposing face of Little Bear Peak. As the trail nears the end of the valley it ascends a small headwall where many paths break off. After passing the head wall head toward the ridge just to the right of the saddle first. The views from this ridge are breathtaking and a little scary. Follow the ridge the rest of the way to the summit.Show more
