What an amazing day we had up Pioneer Peak (the south one). Our friend, Stephen was about to leave, so we hiked it earlier than we normally do. But, I liked it better. The trail was not as overgrown.
You can see the places we hiked by clicking here. My phone died, so the trail says 5 hours 35, but actually, it took us 8 1/2 hours. We did a bit longer because of avoiding some snow patches.
The trail is fun and climbs, and climbs. At the ridge, you still climb but about 1 hour of steep incline, we did get a breather and AMAZING VIEWS.
The trail earlier on can be muddy, but we only had a few shimmies around some muddier sections.
