My number one favorite trail in all time. Very easy for me, maybe because i went this place so many times.

I really like this trail. The hike is moderate. What makes it hard is the length of the hike if you're not in great shape. If you're in great shape it's a good workout.

Ok so I tried this on my gravel bike(no shocks, skinny tires, road bike frame) so not on an actual mountain bike. Needless to say it did not go well. I can see where this would be a great mountain bike trail or hiking! Definitely want to try it on foot

Great hike! Did the full loop and loved it. Make sure to bring plenty of water. It's steep in a few places.

Great trail, very well marked, not an overwhelming amount of people, especially if you are doing one of the longer loops. My son and I did the 10.4 mile loop from Gateway to Windgate to Bell Pass back to Gateway. There are lots of rocks on the trail so wear good fitting trail shoes. Bring at least one quart of water per hiker for every 5 miles hiked to stay hydrated and take a quick water break every 1 to 1.5 miles. Enjoy this great trail!
