Great trail. A very intense climbing to the top of Wind Hill, but the way back worth it all.

It was our first time doing the trail and we loved it. The trail is under the big trees and lunch greens around it. There's also a stream in the first part of the trail and you can hear the water as well. The trail is a lot of switch backs and all going up hill so you are definitely getting your workout too. When we reach the end of the trail we decided to go to windy hill and down to spring ridge trail loop. It's the perfect time to hike as the trees are changing colors .

Awesome. I took Hamm Gulch to Lost Trail, then connected to Spring Ridge. This route is dog friendly. Hamm Gulch is mostly shaded, and the incline isn't so bad with the switch backs. Spring Ridge is completely open with little shade, and a steep grade down. Spring Ridge is bike friendly, but not horse. I imagine if you took this route the opposite way it would be challenging, starting with the hill and sun. I logged 7.6 miles with 1475 ft incline. There is also a creek to cross when on Gulch, which is nice for dogs and horses to drink out of. There are some benches along the way as well. Would definitely recommend!
