Description

Starting off with a gentle grade, the trail becomes rocky and steep for ~1.5 miles. The last 0.7 miles, or so, is mainly steep bedrock pitches, though tough, they are fun to scramble up. There are decent views from the top.

This is part of the Mt. Cardigan Super Loop.

It has some pretty poorly maintained parts about 1/4 mile into the hike. Only when it gets challenging does it get better. 2.2mi — 10h 30m
