    Wonderful moderately difficult hike in the Sierra which which is largely in a moderately dense pine forest passing through some small creeks that are easy to cross and then ascends in the last mile above the treeline for the ascent to Castle Peak which is fairly steep and covered with sand and scree near the top. Trrekking poles are helpful here The snow was almost completely gone, mosquitoes were bad in the lower elevations and the wildflowers were incredible, likely near their peak.
