Description

From the Lily Mountain Trailhead, this trail traverses gentle terrain past a few nice views of the surrounding area. After a little more than a mile, the trail stops traversing Lily Mountain and begins its arduous climb to the summit, tackling nearly a thousand feet of climbing in about a mile. Once you've made the top, your efforts will be rewarded with nice views of the surrounding area, including Twin Sisters.

Snow currently packed down enough to have almost no post-holing. Traction useful but not necessary. View at the top is amazing. 4mi — 1h 47m
