June 9, 2019. Nice hike & training climb to the Church Pond Summit Saddle at 8000 ft. There are six switchbacks along a well traveled trail through the forest with enough shade to stop if needed & cool a bit. If you take your dog, the temperature should not be over 60° as they have no way to cool their bodies & creek water is limited. I think the gain is at least 1800 ft & to get ready for some outdoor event it can be used to get a good workout. Some friends of mine who were training for Mt. Shasta would climb it 3 times to try to match the elevation gain on Shasta, which is a lot.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
