Description

This trail leads from the Alpine Visitor Center (~11,800') up to a peak about 200 feet above. If the air wasn't quite thin enough for you at the Visitor Center, this is a great way to get even higher as well as improve the views.

Photo on Jul 18, 2016.  Wonderful view but unpredictable weather:  sunshine, rain, hail, thunder and rainbows.  Be prepared!

Quick easy climb up 224 stairs to a spectacular view that also accomplishes putting you above 12,000ft. Altitude is tiresome but hike itself is easy. — 13h 00m
