By the Numbers
Steep climbing to, and steep descent from, Navaho Pass, even steeper to Navaho Peak
Enjoyable hike in perfect fall conditions. Started hiking around 10am with air temperature just above freezing so dress appropriately. The trail is in good condition but lacks any signage so be sure to follow the directions, particularly bearing to the right at the T. Arrived at the ridge around noon.
There is not much in the way of views on the trail to the pass but once you reach the ridge the views are magnificent. The trail to Navaho Peak is steep but well worth the extra effort, Rainier and Adams were both clearly visible.
