Hike Summary: The wildflowers were just on the verge of blooming when I went on this section hike in early/ mid April 2008. The trail maintenance was excellent and even though Saturday was beautiful and clear, I did not see anyone on the trail. Beautiful vistas. Whiterock mountain was one of the best vistas I have ever seen. The high wind gusts that day added to the ambiance and adventure.
