Trail Description:

The trail contours east around the south slopes of the mountain, climbing quickly up into alpine. Continue to follow the obvious line toward the summit. The final climb to the old Dominion Fire Lookout is steep and narrow. Route finding increases with lingering snow. A second rigorous 1 hr. return trail to Twin Lakes branches left at the bridge just above the tree line. Steep cliffs, best in mid-summer to avoid snow and/or wet conditions.
