trip report by site editor Rick McCharles
- 4.8 miles return
- perhaps the best half day hike in the Park
- starts at 5,650 feet, ends at a dramatic rocky ridge at 6,850 feet
On the way up you can look back to the campsite.
Pretty views non-stop.
Surprisingly large trees.
This is heaven on a nice day.
I left a Summit Stone atop this feature. You’ll need to scramble to find it.
I didn’t spend much time at the end of the ridge. It was too windy.
There is no Lost Mine I’m afraid. That’s an old legend.
But I do highly recommend this hike. Weather permitting.
