Hiking definitely turns into more climbing towards the end of the hike which makes it even more fun. It was raining which made the trail slick but not impassable.

We did this hike yesterday. I read a comment that it was more of a climb than a hike and I can definitely feel it in my lats today. It was harder to stay in the trail than I expected. The six mile round trip ended up being seven according to the garmin. But still super fun and super challenging. I will definitely do it again!

The most amazing and rewarding hike I've ever been on! Wear shoes with good traction- you'll need it!

Difficult to say the least, but the view from the top is spectacular. Rewards the effort.

Excellent, moderate hike. Parking lot was nearly empty on a Friday morning. 1.5 hours to the saddle, a little over an hour coming back down. The last half-mile before the saddle is the most strenuous part of the trail.

One of my favourite hikes. It fits in my my limited skill level and offers some great views. I have done this at least once a year for the last three or four years.
