Description

As long at there is no snow to obscure the trail, it is distinct the whole way up. From the parking lot, follow the obvious trail. The first mile is rather comfortable and stays just uphill from the Friend Creek, crossing it once. Continuing along the willow-strewn creek, the trail begins to pick up more elevation.

At around the second mile the trail begins to switchback its way up, and the gnarled pines get bigger and the terrain more rocky. After about three miles, you separate from the now distant Friend Creek and switchback your way up the mountain.

Getting closer to the summit, the switchbacks tighten up and you find yourself on a stark, rocky terrain with huge vistas. The summit is only slightly marred by the radio towers. To get to the true summit, scramble your way over boulders to the top.
