“Amazing views of the Flathead Valley and Jewel Basin.”— Chris Devereux
Follow signs for Mt. Aeneas at second fork in trail. This is when it starts to be a climb. Multiple switchbacks bring you up to the ridge and you get your first views into jewel basin. Follow the ridge to the southeast and finish the last half mile to the top. The last bit is steep and some very minimal scrambling.
You can turn back at the submit, but the trail continues on, defending towards the lakes to the north and connects to other trails.
