Challenging inclines and sometimes dicey conditions (snow!) make this hike a true adventure, with worthwhile, scenic rewards.
Start out on Icehouse Canyon Trail. Depending on the time of year, there can be snow and ice patches on this trail, as well as strong winds. The trail is sunny and pleasant in summer, though you should check reports for thunderstorms.
From the Icehouse Saddle (3.6 miles), take the Timber Mountain Trail to the summit. Steel yourself for the last 0.25 miles to the top, which is particularly steep.
