13.75 miles of hiking • 4250' elevation gain •
This is not a hike if one is looking for solitude. The majority of hikers though appeared to be backpackers heading to "the meadow" to set up camp. There were surprisingly few people at the pass and even fewer who ventured the steep climb to the peak. The views of the Stuart Range & The Enchantments were nice from the pass but from the peak they were outstanding and one could also see Rainier and Adams to the south.
