The trail continues way up to the fire hut that can be seen from the first look out which is on top of the highest peak. The trail to the hut will be faint in places and pushes the rating of the hike to difficult.

Keep a watchful eye for wildlife. We saw a group of sheep, a few deer…and this 80 lb wolverine near the top!
