Hikers wishing to visit the Sperry Chalet Complex need to be aware of restrictions and post-fire trail conditions.
  • The ruins of the chalet are closed to the public, as are some additional areas around the complex.
  • The trail is steep. Hikers will gain 3,593 feet, in 6.3 miles, to reach the chalet.
  • The loss of the forest cover means the trail will be much sunnier and hotter than in years past. Hikers should be prepared with sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of water.
  • Overnight accommodations will not be available, however toilets, water, and limited food service may be.
