Comments
Comments: Steady, easy hike to Mt. Osceola. Beautiful 180 degree plus views at the top with nice ledges to sit and enjoy the view. Continuing to East Osceola drops you quite a bit. We missed the Chimney on the way over as we didn't realize the trail split until we got to the bottom. No markers! LOL! Short flat and then up to East Osceola. A little steeper, but still moderate. On the way back we went up the Chimney. Lots of good hand and footholds. Only one step that didn't feel extremely secure. Definitely fun to climb. Could be hazardous if the rocks were wet. Great day on the trail.
