This was an absolutely gorgeous trail! This was just the right time of year (beginning of July) to see the wildflowers. Getting to the trailhead was a bit tricky (the road is pretty bumpy, and it takes a good 20 minutes to get there from where the paved road ends), but it was well worth it. The views were spectacular, and the hike was interesting - crossing waterfalls and streams, hiking along the banks of cliffs covered in flowers (columbine galore!), and finally reaching the glacier (which itself was somewhat underwhelming, but that's in comparison to glaciers I saw in Alaska). It was pretty chilly at the top, so don't forget your windbreaker. We heard it was another 45 minutes to an hour to reach the peak, although it looks quite close. I highly recommend this trail to anyone. We saw quite a few kids and some dogs along the way, too, and they seemed to be doing fine.
