Hiked early 10/25/2022. Trail was in better shape than expected and easily traversed - just a few fallen trees that were easily bypassed. Had awesome views during the entire climb. Actually expected more fire damage from reading the reviews but you do get to see how the ecosystem is recovering. The area above Limber Pine Camp was spared from fire for the most part. Summit was cold but not very windy with incredible views. Limber Pine Spring was partially iced over but still flowing for filtering. Did not see anyone all day and my truck was the only vehicle at the trailhead. This hike is hands down worth the beautiful views you get to enjoy!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
It’s 18 miles total but the long trail makes gradual climb fun! The first three miles have plenty of shades but after that it’s pretty much exposed. Bring more than 3 quarts of water if you don’t want to collect and filter stream water near the top. 1/2 mile dirt road to trail parking lot was full of jagged edge rocks. My sedan clearance was fine. Small parking lot so be there early. It took me 6:00 hours ascending and 3:20 hours descending.★ ★ ★ ★
