8.23 miles of hiking • 3000' elevation gain • 1 night
This is a crowded trail even for a Tuesday. One can see why though with the great views. Lots of available places to camp and no permit is required as it is not in the National Park. Also, water supplies are abundant. I would like to return and spend more time exploring the area as there are multiple peaks one could scramble up. The views of Canadian peaks from Yellow Aster were pretty awesome.
