The first part of the trail off of the lake road kicked our butts. Seemed steeper than most trails start out and we gained over 1000 ft in our first 25 minutes.

Great views from the Noonmark shoulder.
Great views of the great range from Dial Mt.
Great views from Nippletop also to the west.
Beautiful views of Ausable lake from the Fish Hawk cliffs and Indian Head.
