This is a nice little hike that can be a bit challenging if you try to do it in the hotter part of the day. There is very little shade along the way and certainly plan for plenty of water breaks (and bring enough along for doggos if you bring them with you). It is uphill to the top (duh) and will certainly give you plenty of exercise on the ascent. It is worth it, though, with nice views of The Valley and Patterson Lake.

I definitely recommend an early start and you might check the wildfire conditions before you go. The Crescent Mountain and Gilbert fires are active about 13 miles up the Twisp River and there is quite a lot of haze and smoke limiting the visibility. Other than the visibility today, it was certainly a worthwhile hike.
