“A powerful trail up to the summit of Laramie Peak.”— Russell Hobart
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.
