Solid day of hiking, completed all 5 peaks in the Dix Range. Started from the Elk Lake trailhead at 6am. Going up the slides of Macomb wasn't too difficult, just had to be very careful of each step as rocks could become loose and cause you to slip and fall possibly. Macomb was steep but offered great views. South Dix & East Dix (Grace Peak) were easy to get to, Grace had the better views. Hiking up Hough was tough and very steep. Hough to the Beckhorn & Dix was steep in a few spots but overall not too bad. Summited Dix by 12:30pm. Went down the trail via the Beckhorn, steep going down and a bit slippery. Total time of 10.5 hours (including an hour on top of Dix), 15.8 miles round trip.
