What a fun trail! Starts off in shaded tree area and then opens up onto a bowl leading to the saddle between Sacagawea and Hardscrabble. In late June there was still some snow (which made for interesting hiking) and some folks had even brought up their skis. The hike up to the final peak ascent was straightforward and the views were amazing. If you want to be alone, go somewhere else - there are plenty of other people out there.
