Favorite hike ever. If you're into geology, this is Nirvana (read the geological hx before you do it). 1960s old plane wreck site above Basin, off the path. A Camelbak is essential--super dry, super hot most of the year. Above Basin, it gets pretty tough.

It was a great hike. Came when it was almost too warm.

Nice parking area. Trail was marked well. Great view from the saddle of Weaver's Needle. We ended up hiking on out to the overlook by the lone pine tree. About 3.5 hours of hiking.

Tough hike with the ups and downs. Definitely worth it to see the Supes from another vantage.

Good hike. Bring lots of water and plan on 5 hours to go the whole way to flat iron.
