“Beautiful views along the ridge to Cape Horn Mountain.”— Matthew Henderson
Even if you don't want to go all the way to Cape Horn Mountain, you'll at least want to run a few hundred feet to the first high point on the ridge to get the views of the Sawtooths and White Clouds, which are hidden from view at the divide.
