Description There is a good trail through the forest which climbs steadily at about a 22% grade.  Think Pilot Road.  It goes up 1,100 metres in 5.0 km.  It’s strenuous but not difficult other than that.  At the top of the climb there are fantastic views all around and a small alpine lake.  From there the trail to the summit is easier.  14 km, 7 hours, plus driving and ferry time.
