10.6 miles of hiking • 2250' elevation gain •
Fabulous first trip up for the year. The flowers are just starting at the top, but are looking good around Bald Mountain. One sketchy spot still, right before the McNeil Plateau. The trail from the Mazama junction and about a third of the way up the first section of the turnoff trail to McNeil is still snow covered, so it is still helpful to know the route. Amazing as always.
