    After an early September snow fall, the trail was clear of snow until Hartenstein Lake junction. Thereafter snow on the trail until breaking out of timber near top end. This trail is stingy on views except a couple in the middle section and then at the top. The redeeming view that made it better was heavily snow coated north face of Mt. Princeton.

    The hike up is a gradual incline, but it does gain 2,000ft by the lake. The north couloir of Grizzly Peak hold snow well into July and is a classic ski decent, topping out at 13,980ft! Be mindful of the starting elevation at this trailhead of 10,600ft.

    Parked at the forest service sign and mountain biked up to the reservoir. Bike up us a decent climb, and coming down is good fun. The creek by the side of the road is very dramatic but didn’t see many trout in it, maybe due to periodic large waterfalls.

    Beautiful hike. Trails are well maintained. More difficult to find best bouldering route. Summit views are spectacular

    Tourists, do not underestimate the steady elevation gain of this hike. Be sure to start down by noon in August. Solo navigation of bouldering to summit takes patient scouting during summit fever rush to spot the next cairn. Do not proceed until you spot the next cairn, but half way up the boulder climb the tiny cairns move to the east face which can only be seen by following the brief (30 ft) dirt trail from the last cairn on the west face. Do not climb unless you are heading for a cairn. As Bunny states, do not start out on the east face.

    Excellent trail most of the way. However, finding the route on the ridge can be challenging as it is difficult to follow the trails in the rocks. Follow the cairns on the West side. Do not cross to the east side even though some misleading tracks lead in this direction. The distance and time associated this hike are grossly inaccurate. Distance is 15 km and 6 to 8 hours is more reasonable estimate of the time needed. Elevation gain is 1288 m.

    Excellent trail most of the way. However finding the route on the ridge can be confusing as the trail vanishes in boulders. Follow the cairns on the west side of the ridge. Do not cross to the east side even though some tracks lead in this direction.
