Moderately easy trail with a couple of 1/4 mile humps, but don't stop for long. The goal is the Giant Steps another 3.5 miles up the Paradise Valley. It's a full day hike -- 12 miles RT, with a couple of big humps (not a scramble or anything) between Annette and the Steps.
The trail's posted with G-Bear alerts; must travel in groups of 4+, bear spray (in the group) recommended, but largely unnecessary if you make enough noise as you go. The real pretty stuff's past Lake Annette -- so think if the lake as your appetizer.
