This was steep the entire way, but not impossible. The last scramble up the rocks is the hardest. Very little snow at the top.

The end was a little sketchy with the scrambling on the boulders but it was a great hike. My 8 year old daughter loved it. It took us 3 hours.

Great spring trail. It is a leg workout. We did 8 miles round trip. The flowers are out and the views are awesome. We trail ran part of back.

The West Face is more challenging than the Church Fork option (a nice point to point is to go up the West Face and down to Church Fork/Mill Creek Canyon) and the peak affords great views of the valley. There was no snow to contend with on 5/21.

Lots of people but many opportunities to stray off a little. Fun place to adventure

Excellent hike, my dachshund loved this one. It's not a crazy elevation gain and I'd rate it easy. Beautiful lake to see at the end, I'd like to hike it from Big Cottonwood Canyon side now!

Ankle to shin-deep snow at the ascent to the first ridge, then the ridge trail is easy to follow up to the gobblers knob split. Going up to the saddle, the trail disappears under the snow for the remainder of the trail, so I used the AllTrails app and followed the general direction with GPS. Had to turn around 0.4mi from the summit due to dangerous snow chutes.
Could have benefited from micro spike traction in the snow.
