Use the utility road for the initial ascent. Beautiful view on the road up. We lost the trail once the road met the lift at the umbrella bar. We went straight but I think we should have gone to the right at that point. We turned around before the final summit climb because we saw a cougar cub and didn’t want to scare mama. If you follow the path on the map, your descent will be straight downhill on a black diamond ski run. Beautiful view but tough not the knees.
