“A gorgeous, forested trail with great views. Watch for marmots at the top!”— Jake Keyser
About 4 miles in, visitors will come upon a feature called the Spire, a large granite tower that appears on your right. This is a great rest opportunity before the last push to the top. The last 1.5 miles are very steep, and the trail can be hard to follow due to treefall. Look for cairns to guide you around the treefall.
Once above treeline, follow the cairns to the top. Look for the PVC tube with the summit register and be on the lookout for marmots, as they would like to sample any snacks that you brought with you.
