Beautiful morning hike, started at 9, it warmed up to the 80s, and breezes near the top were amazing. Took the standard hiking trail; 3 hours to the top with my 2 companions. Great trail, lush ferns near the bottom. Views of the Sawtooths and Wolf Mountain around the top were awesome.
A deceptively steep hike! I did this with my friend Jon Oh and never saw so many ticks.....we had to start burning them off our clothes! I didn't bring enough water and got dehydrated by the hike. The summit had a outpost, and there was a great view of the Boise mountains.....including Wolf Peak. The Sawtooths were visible near by as well.
