The "six hikers" rule was in effect this summer: all hikers must be in groups of 6 or more to discourage encounters with bears. Strictlly enforced. I had to wait at the trailhead for awhile until we reached critical mass, but then had a very enjoyable day. A little steep at first, then just a beautiful, relatively long trail up the valley to the pass. Very windy on the pass, and we had a brief snow storm on July 12. Well maintained trail with spectacular views. It will take some hikers more than hours for the round trip.
