“A scenic 6-mile out-and-back run up the northern face of Pico Mountain.”— Simeon Pol
Around mile 1.5, the climb becomes steeper and begins to switchback up the mountain. Around this elevation, the environment begins to change to more coniferous trees and mossy ground. Around mile 2.5 the Pico Shelter will appear on your right. The trail splits with the Sherburne Pass Trail continuing south and the Pico Link Trail continuing west.
The entirety of the Pico Link Trail is a steep climb to the peak of Pico Mountain. Navigate with care until you reach the second section of ski trail where you'll be able to see the ski patrol lodge and the summit lift.
