    This was a wonderful hike for the whole family. We made it to tree line in about 1 hour and then turned around. Great views of Mt Bailey and Diamond Lake as you near the top. Hike was fairly easy on non-hiking family members as long as you take frequent breaks. We trained for 2 yrs for this hike and it was well worth the time and effort. Training made the hike up less taxing on our breathing. Go ..enjoy

    Great view. One of my most memorable hikes to date. Wear good shoes. Make sure your dogs pads don't get too beat up before you reach the top. Boulder up to the top and sign your name and you'll be rewarded with a fantastic view of the Cascades.

    Get an early start and take plenty of water. The hike seems longer than 8 miles out and back because of the elevation change. The last mile is strenuous and difficult to get footing. The last half mile of sharp rocks and scree is very abrasive for dog's paws. The climb at the top is moderate and well worth the view. Technical gear is not required as it is more bouldering than rock climbing. Make sure to sign the log in the metal pipe at the top.
