Runner Notes [Suggest Changes]

Kudos if you can run the entire way up this leg burner!

Description [Suggest Changes]

The views from Conical Hill are well worth the effort to reach the top. That being said, you are in for a quad burning climb up to the summit. Leave your pack at the Harris Shelter to make your journey a bit easier!

From Harris Saddle, cross the small gully and start heading up. The climb starts in earnest with a couple switchbacks to ease the elevation gain, but don't expect the going to get any easier. Watch your footing on a few washed out sections as the trail become more exposed as you climb.

The views of the Hollyford Valley are truly stupendous on a clear day, and you'll want to take plenty of time up top to catch your breath and take in the scenery before heading back down.
