Good views of Hozameen, Outram, Dewdney, Picket Ridge and even the highway in Sunshine valley. We got to the campsite/TH area in less than 3 and a 1/2 hours. Stopped for lunch on the ridge above the bowl and the carried on to the peak to enjoy the 360 degree views. We did the round trip in 8.5 hours, stopping for a total of 1 hr for lunch and pictures. We did not explore the mines but did find the geocache at the top. Downside Steep, and hard on the knees at the switch backs. We forgot our trekking poles for this one. Comment Great hike, with great views. The trail was well marked and in good condition.

As you follow the trail up, the closed gps availability was 10U 0640337 5451036 close to the creek. There are several old mines along the trail, with the first at 10U 0643110 5449068. Going along the trail is very good, with water available after the 7 switchbacks(about 4 hours in) There are old cabins to look at as well. Downside We spent 6 hours going up the trail, and did not reach the summit in this time. We did spend about 1/2 hour for lunch, and 1/2 hour looking at cabins and mine shafts. Comment This trail was a fantastic hike, but to make the summit, you cannot doddle too much along the trail.
