    Felt very long. Lots of switchbacks. Totally worth it to make it to the top though!

Great prepper for Whitney, if for nothing else than all the switchbacks. And an endurance hike to boot. Start low and finish high with a consistent never ending incline. Trail affords some nice views, but the big payoff is the summit with views of All the big SoCal peaks. Wilson, Baldy, The 3 Ts, San Jacinto, and Gorgonio. Make time and end your day in Wrightwood at The Yodler for post hike food and grog. Fun day!

It's a very steady climb, switchbacks all the way. There is a decent amount of shade along the trail, but there are some open stretches near the start and near the summit where it can get pretty toasty.

Fantastic trail. Very steady grade, mostly shady. Great views at the top. It would make a challenging but manageable trail run. Trailhead is just a few minutes from Mountain High.
