THANK YOU! This trail is simply one of the best I have done. Definitely parts would be considered strenuous, especially with the wind, temps in the 20s at the top and some snow. The scenery going clockwise (highly recommended) is indescribable. It rained in the early morning hours, today, clouds surrounded and often enveloped the mountain, but the blue sky and incredible views – WOW.

I suggest: a) plenty of layers b) water c) food d) poles e) gloves (my hands turned blue within a minute it was so cold) f) a camera phone/camera!
