Wonderful hike but a long drive to the trailhead at around 11,000 ft. About half of the trail is just below or about at tree-line and the rest a little above so the open woods and views are wonderful and the wild flowers spectacular in July. We saw a big herd of wapiti near where the trail descends to Ruby Lake.
