We had great weather for a long hike. Worth the effort for the wonderful views! The hike can be difficult because the elevation gain comes all at once. Depending on hiking speed, it can take 45 - 60 minutes, at a constant 45 degree incline, to hike through the change in elevation. At the top, it was windy and cold and we needed to search for natural shelter from the elements in order to eat lunch in relative comfort. We tucked in behind some trees. Though this area is known for its snow mobile usage, we did not see any that day. The trail to the top is mostly bushwhacking with no blue diamonds to follow. We did not an interesting geological feature along the North side. There appears to be a warm air vent, coming up from underneath. And we all made it home in time for (Easter) dinner even!
