The Crest Trail that leads up to Hillsboro Peak is well designed to keep a nice, moderately steep pitch, making this 10 mile out-and-back hike not too difficult. The trail begins at the vista parking lot at Emory Pass, which in itself has fantastic views below, as well as a few amenities, like toilets. You will stroll through open coniferous forest, enjoying wildflowers along the way, with continually great views. Once you reach Hillsboro Peak, you'll have a fantastic view from the lookout towers, also giving you a fine place to camp, if you so choose. There may be snow lingering along the trail in late spring, but nothing that should block your way. Because this hike is in the wilderness, no mountain bikes are allowed.
