    Hiked 9/7/2020. The view of Glacier Peak on this hike is spectacular. You catch views of Glacier to the left and other awesome peaks to the right about halfway up, which means there's more time to enjoy them (rather than only getting views at the summit). It was windy at the top, but not too bad. The summit is large so there's plenty of room for multiple parties to spread out and keep their distance from each other. The trail is interesting: It's an all-or-nothing steepness. The steep parts were insane--I felt like I was almost climbing a ladder. But then in between the steep parts were nearly totally flat sections that were so beautiful and peaceful. The trail surface is great (packed dirt with pine needles) for most of the hike. Only the first .5 mile or so is loose dirt and rocks.
