Beautiful! On the sunny side, I found a tiny horny toad!
I hiked this trail without the map. I started from the campground and ended up going off trail and going for the Ridgeline peaking at the top of one of the open peaks. Gorgeous views and the cool weather and some snow still left in the ground for March was an added bonus. the basic trail is goid, but if you feel adventurous, go fir the top.. it's well worth it.
Nice short, quiet trail.
Awesome hike, even in early spring and with some hail.
Great hike! Make sure to take in the vista at the turn back down. Just amazing.
Easy hike with the kids. Lots of shade and easy walking. Doesn't matter which way you go on the loop its uphill till you loop back.
This is a worthwhile little hike. It is easy for kids. You must hike through the Black Canyon Campground before reaching the trail.
this was an easy day hike. It begins behind campsite #24, and loops up the hill and through the woods. I went during the government shutdown, so the campsite was closed and bathrooms were closed. It was a peaceful hike.
