Description

This hike starts in the Highwood area.

It is a light trafficked trail through the forest but then opens up into some great alpine.

There are a ton of wild flowers and if you take a break look back so you can see across the valley.

The trail is dirt all the way to the saddle with limited steep sections. Once on the saddle you will start to hike on the alpine grass where you can see a bit of a trail every now and then but you can pick your own route up.

This is terrain is uneven and has some rocks but moving slowly through it you will gain the peak and have a phenomenal ridge to walk with 360 degree views. *You can walk down the ridge and continue to make a loop but you will end up down the road from where you started.
