Runner Notes

The trail is good for running up until you reach the alpine tarn—there's lots of scree/talus above that.

Description

This trail is a long slog up switchbacks along well defined and well maintained trail to the alpine. Once in the alpine, the route is marked by red paint on rocks. Runners should be aware that there is a lot of scree and small boulders to navigate through. The true summit is fairly exposed, and there is a short scramble up and down a couple dips along the summit ridge before actually reaching the peak.

Flora & Fauna

Mountain goats, pika, marmots, lupines, paintbrush, columbine, glacier lily, pinesap, Dutchman's pipe, and tiger lilies abound up here.
