This hike is somewhat of a challenge but worth it. On a clear day the views at the top are amazing. Hike up the switchbacks through a nice forest of rhododendron, through the forest, arriving at a steep subalpine meadow. The trail climbs above a waterfall on the major tributary to Townsend Creek, then begins the remaining two-dozen switchbacks to the summit.
