This is a wonderful backpacking trip. 2 miles to the first camp site and it is a perfect site to set up and lanch to the summit from. Fire rings, views of the sunsets and about 1500 feet up from the trail start. We stayed two nights in November with lows just in the upper 20's. It was t-shrt weather during the day. Clean cool creeks for drinking water..Snow in patches for the dogs. And the best part, we only saw 1 person the entire weekend. We summited both west and east mountain. Easily both doable in a day. Then returned back to our summit. I would do this trip again with the dogs in a heartbeat in november!
