Summit Trail

From trailhead , the trail climbs over a small dome then drops into the trees before junction with the Ski Loop Trail. The trail continues to climb past Wickersham Dome to its highest point at 3,100 feet near mile ten. The trail then decends through the spruce forest to Beaver Creek and Borealis ?LeFevre Cabin. Crossing Beaver Creek in the summer can be very dangerous at high water and hikers should be aware of their abilities before trying any stream crossing.
