This is the fourth sixer that I have done. It is comparable to St Regis in the fact that it start out very easy then gets steep rapidly. The views are not 360 but they are still good. You have to hike a ways in before you get to where the trail splits into two directions, Haystack on the left and McKenzie on the right. After heading on the trail you come to a damn that is very easy to cross. A nice hike with moderate effort.
