Just hiked Mt. Good. I wasn’t able to get a lot of intel on it which is probably due to the fact that it’s a pretty straight forward hike. I did keep hearing about a tedious sand part to the hike which I didn’t see until I followed the use trail down. Inadvertently I had taken a gully directly noth of Bishop lake heading north west instead of going straight north up the hill at the end of Saddle Rock lake. The gully was very easy with firm ground all the way up to the plateau where the final ascent to Mt Good takes place. If I was to do it again, I would definitely follow the gully up on firm ground, and then slide down the sandy use trail on the way down. Once on the plateau, just follow the chute directly under the peak and simply pick and choose your way to the top.
