  • Amazing hike. Cool/ windy at the top. Well worth the trip. Trying to do it again 5/2019. I hope it is not snow covered.
  • This is a hike in Yellowstone National Park. It is a 4.5 mile out and back hike with an altitude gain of 2017 feet. While it is a hard hike, the views at the top are spectacular.
  • It took me almost 2 hrs to the top, but the view is great and it it a good place to see Yellowstone Lake
  • Intense but incredibly rewarding hike. Views of yellowstone lake and the Tetons from the top
  • Must say one of the prettiest and beautiful sight place. Climb to the top 6 miles and you won’t regret a second of your trail. Well marked and worth going in the morning when sun is not at its peak. Carry good jackets as it’s too windy at the top.
