This will be a early start due to limited parking and we want to climb up before it gets hot. Please preview the route on All Trails to understand this endurance hike. Carpooling is encouraged for limited trail head parking. 

The trail is long, starts in shady forest, pass through a wildflower scree field, a shady creek camping area then last push up on an exposed basin to the view point saddle.

This is a very challanging hike, longer distance and steep at the end. Be sure you are ready for the longer miles and elevation gain. It will take endurance to complete.
