Grade was gentle all the way up, and views of Big T in the afternoon light were fantastic. Hikers who bring their dogs, however, should learn to pick up after them.
Done this hike a couple of times and will probably never do it again. Second time was very hot and there was a zillion bugs. Otherwise, the views from the ugly summit are very nice.
Great views. Was treated to seeing Lance Armstrong when we came done from our hike to Josephine.
One of my very favorite running and biking routes. I've done it dozens of times, in decreasing order, by running, biking and hiking. I especially enjoy those yellow flowers with a beautiful scent along the lower fire road during the spring.
