What a fantastic hike destination! After a 9 miles USFS road trk to the trail head it is 1-1/2 miles and 1500 feet of elevation gain sans switchbacks, so prepare for a good hamstring workout. The final 200 yards, as the guide suggests, is a solid rock scramble to the top. There are, however, no longer any guard rails or cables on the slope, so it is truly a scramble to the top. Once you get there the views are AMAZING. I was lucky to go on a crystal clear day and could see every peak from Mt. Baker in the north all the way to Mt. Hood to the south. With the incredible amount of snowpack this year there were several snow traverses to navigate and the trail got lost a few times under the snow. Also, once at the top, it is 2000 feet straight down to Cora lake, so keep kids and dogs away from the ledge.
