Hiked this trail on October 6th with two daughters and Son-In-Law. Great time of year as the temperature was perfect (50s to low 60s). The last time was a couple of years ago in June and it was quite warm. It took about an hour and 45 minutes up and about an hour and 20 minutes down with lunch and photos at the top. It’s a very challenging hike! The first half is a well traveled trail which wraps around the mountain from the west side to the northeast side and then it starts a steep ascent up a skree field. At the top of the skree field starts the bouldering section which is marked with red spray painted arrows and cairns marking the way. Take your time and stay focused. It’s very steep! The trail wraps around to the east side with a foot path and more bouldering with a final ascent to the top. The view at the top is 360 degrees of total awesomeness. I’m guessing you can see 40-50 miles. You’ll love this hike! The Land of Enchantment at its finest!
