Brutal in summer heat. One nalgene won't do it. Cool payoff at the top, but otherwise not an exciting hike via this route. Would recommend coming in from the North.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed this trail. Steady incline all the way up but not too strenuous.

Love this trail. There are always people on it though, especially on the weekends. But great for exercise - and take your dog! Continue on at the top to Inspiration Point - that is a REAL workout.

I find this trail to be unique. The ruins at the top are an incredible relic to the history of the region. I've been here many times and will be many more

Great workout. Less than an hour up at a fast pace. Great after-work trail.

Great run up Echo mountain this morning. You have several choices of additional trails once you reach the top!

Although cold, light overcast and drizzle it was still a nice hike. A little steep and difficult but well worth it when you reach the top. Nice views the whole way up with moderate traffic and narrow trails. Hour and a half going up and about an hour going back down the trail.
