Absolutely beautiful! Took my dog and only saw one other couple 10 minutes into hike as they were leaving so was able to let my dog off leash. We both loved the hike and the Limber Grove was amazing!
Awesome trail! Beautiful grove of bristlecone and limber pines!
Nice hike through the woods up to the rock slide. Great views of the cliffs above and surrounding mountains. 1000 year old twisted pine trees in Limber Grove were especially impressive.
My boyfriend and I took our two akitas on this trail today. itbwas very quiet, we only saw one other group. The creek right when you park is beautiful and so are the ancient trees. We will definitely do again! I would say it's about 50/50 shade and sun. It wasn't too bad for us and we don't hike crazy trails. The one thing to make note of is that the rock slide area is hard for dogs to navigate. I don't know if I would bring mine back, they didn't seem to like walking on all the broken rocks.
Beautiful hike. It rained on is lightly but the views were wonderful! Pretty easy hike. We will be going back!
This trail looks beautiful. Too bad it was snow covered this weekend and I didn't bring any snow gear so we Z and I just stopped by the trailhead, took a couple pictures and meandered on.
Amazing ancient trees, a must see. Fun walk across the rock slide area and a creek.
This trail takes you through some old Limber Pine and big boulders at the base of Sheep Mt. The trail is between to campgrounds on 4 Mile Creek Rd.
