Long hike around the mountain going from one side to the other switching from desert and cactus trails to forests with snow. trail has a couple spots were the trail has eroded away and is wet or snowy can be a bit chalanging. a couple spots take a bit of a climb to get up but overall stading at the top gasping for air the view is worth it weather seeing for miles or looking over at el capitan a great view. Rolled my ankle on the way down on one of the big rock steps.
