Some of them are quite steep. However you will be amazed on the expansive views on each climb. It is worth the workout. Have lunch on the ridge between North Hill and Chipmunk Mtn. When the blue trail meets the Pine Meadow (red) trail, continue on the 7 Hills (blue) trail up the Diamond Mtn. Change to yellow trail on the right to Pine Meadow (red) trail again. Make a right on the red trail and follow it back to the parking lot. C level hikers can make side trips to the Ramapo Torne, further up on Diamond Mtn Tower and the Pine Meadow Lake.
