The start for this hike is at 12,000 ft., and the hiking is all above tree line, so the views in every direction are spectacular. We will follow use trails across the gentle meadows of wildflowers affectionately known as the Melanie Highline, then over open rocky slopes to the short but fairly steep climb up North Anvil Peak. Returning by the same route, with the option to add an additional mile and a steep 600 ft. by climbing with some scrambling up Ohio Peak.
