    Difficult but doable trail. The trail is ashy most of the way up, from last year’s fires, so be prepared to be covered in dirt and ash. The trail gets kind of sketchy halfway up, but cairns help mark the way. The best part is at the peak where there’s some scrambling involved. Overall a great hike.

    This is a short hike with a lot of vertical. 3.2 miles and 4000ft straight up. There is no trailhead and you have to park on the south side of 50 and run up the bank on the north side then pick up one of the several use trails going uphill. There are few views going up the canyon until you climb up onto the ridge at mile approx 2.5 and then the views are beautiful. North easterlies of 10-20mph had blown away the smoke from the deadly Camp fire and there was no indication of smoke or fire. The last 250 vertical is all big boulder Class 2, and does not work for dogs. Views on top were great. Big Lake Aloha below looked empty with just a few ponds. I was hoping for a way down there so I could make a one way out to Lake Echo next year but I guess that is not so easy. All told a good workout. Took me and my daughter 5 hours out and back.

This was definitely an ego killer. Last year I did this in 10 hours. This year, after not having hitting summits the last few weeks, it took us 12 hours. Many breaks to breathe and acclimate before continuing on.
