Details

We will hike about 4 miles starting at 9,530 ft and gain about 2000 ft to 11, 600 ft.  The Bristlecone Pine trees at timberline are very old and picturesque. The gradient is fairly steady.



All Trails says:Traveling along West Chicago Creek, the trail climbs for a mile to a bench above and west of the creek. The trail continues climbing less steeply, through lodgepole forest and into the bristlecone pines. The trail ends at timberline in Hell's Hole, in an open meadow at the base of Grey Wolf Mountain.
