Loved it

Nice trail. Turned around from bad weather coming in. The little pond was a great place to stop and have a snack

Nice hike, BEAUTIFUL in the fall time.

Fun hike. Made it all the way with 4 kids. I would go on it again.

Well used, rugged trail. We backpacked in with our kids. Not a lot of shade at the first half of the hike. It was nice that it followed the stream the whole way for refilling our water. Set up camp right next to the hot spring. If I were to do it again with kids, I would hike the 6 miles, then camp at the bottom of the mountain and hike the last 1.5 miles up the mountain in the morning.

We were looking for Elkhorn Peak - didn't find it. (Not the first time anyway!!).

Really great views and , loved the shade of the trees in the morning part of the hike! Wasn't huge on sharing the trail with a lot of 4 wheelers, atvs, and motor cross bikes because of the noise and dust but overall we enjoyed it. We were able to do it with two young kids and a dog. Definitely a family friendly one!

I've been coming here since I was little so I may be a bit biased, but this place is gorgeous. Aside from the beautiful and plentiful hiking/biking trails, there's camping and picnic areas plus a gorgeous scenic overlook.

My wife and I hiked about 4.5 miles each way on this trail, so not to the top of Scout Mountain, but far enough to enjoy some amazing scenery and views. The trail is in quite good condition in most areas. It's a bit rocky for hiking in some spots, but they are passable, and few and far between. We enjoyed it enough to want to hike it again this summer, but this time to the top!

Nice casual hike. Saw a couple of mountain bikers.

make it 4 miles up trail and come back on the elk meadows loop.

Beautiful hike, although VERY uphill in parts. Quite enjoyable though.

It was super pretty! I went in May, and there were wildflowers everywhere!

It is farther than indicated. We didn't make it to the beaver ponds because we had littles with us that couldn't go any farther.

Fun trail. I would rate it more as moderate.
