Remembered the fantastic view from a few years ago, so I brought a friend this time! The 360 degree view can't be beat. I think they've added more equipment at the top than I remember the last time. The windmill power fans unfortunately create a lot of noise on the summit.
Great views from the top but my gosh is it a long slog! Just a very long walk through the trees, and then a very long walk up scree to the summit weather station. If you want a nice view on an very easy non-technical peak this is an option, but there are many quality easy scrambles that are far shorter and afford views just as grand in the area.
My wife road her horse up this trail to Bourgeau Lake. They grazed, read and napped while awaiting my return from the summit. This is a good one for a family summer adventure, due to the different stages you can set up base if you will. It is still a 5000’ ascent, so not everyone would be up for the full route. Cheers!
