There are bears in the vicinity, so keep your food close. This trail may close in the winter.

Description

If there is snow, this trail can become one of the hardest you have done. On the way up, the canopy is lost so have enough sunblock and a hat. as you'll be pretty exposed.

The upper part of the trail has pine trees and lots of canopies. There are also mosquitoes due to all the streams.

Be careful and be ready for a spectacular view as you reach the high point around 2 miles.
