We parked on the highway and crossed the parking lot at Sunrise.  The trail was easy to find, but we used AllTrails to keep on track.
The hike started in the trees, which was a nice relief from the heat.  Once we got to the top of Sunrise chairlift, the trail moves into the open and follows a switchback tail, with some small areas of trees for some shade.  Then the trail follows a rocky trail, bedside the Summit gondola.  The trail is fairly easy to follow, with some larger steps.  The trail tops out at summit gondola hut, then continues up a small hill towards the final summit.  Fun climb!
