This trail is actually 6 miles one way from first parking area. Ends at Buchanan Pass trailhead. Great hike to go alone and meander with your thoughts. Fun day!
This is a beautiful trail with a wide variety of ecosystems. It is a gradual incline with great river and mountain views scattered throughout. There are a few technical sections but nothing too crazy. This is also a great hiking trail for the family. My kids love it!
Only had time for a few miles for our evening hike. We couldn't do the Hidden Lake trail we planned, as it is on private property, so we ended up here for s quick hike. It started off with the nice view of snow capped peaks (visible from the snowmobile path) but once on the trail the scenery didn't change much at all. It was nice to be in the forest and near the water but we had no views and only came across a small meadow.
Beautiful trail! Well maintained and easy, with a little bit of everything for the senses...water, trees, wildflowers, meadows and mountain views. Hiked 4 miles in, to bridge crossing the creek, and returned the way we came. Highly recommend for a summer hike; looks like it would be a great winter snowshoe.
Hiked this trail on July 4th. An easy trail normally but the heavy spring run off flooded the trail in many places. After about the 4 mile mark , the trial and the run off stream bed were one and the same. Decided to turn back.
