Hiked it in July 2015. Great day, beautiful weather. Rainey(dog) was a little trooper, running back n forth on the trail checking on us. We were all of us pooped out after that climb however the ice cream stop on our way out perked us up. :)

Amazing, easy trail (it's most rigorous at the start/end) that loops around a gorgeous lake. Camping locations found along the way.

Beautiful & inspiring!! Last stretch of the hike is climbing up loose rocks but the views & the American flag at summit r pretty amazing! Def took more pics than necessary to hide the fact I was actually stopping to catch my breath. Sometimes you can even catch some paragliders flying down!
