The trail, almost an afterthought during my planning, proved demanding yet richly rewarding. More than 2/3 of it offered views; particularly impressive was gradual revelation of Two Med Lake, and tragical splendor of ghost white bark pine forest. The scenes were diverse – forest, waterfall, canyon, creek, graduated to rocky talus, ridge traverse, and even a section of Highline-sque ledge. Scenic Point itself offered the classic 360 panoramic view and was hosted by a pesky yet adorable chipmunk. It’s a satisfying hike to conclude my trip.
