The Ascent Continues

Trail Thoughts and Musings

It may seem strange that the way to Hell requires such a climb. From the parking lot which is at 8,200 feet, the trail will climb over 400 feet before the drop into Bumpass Hell begins. Fortunately, it very well graded, and the continuing vistas, makes the ascent easier to take. Keep an eye for the silverleaf lupine, it makes up much of the verdant ground cover that lines the trail.
