Good hike for the fall and spring months because it is mostly exposed, which would be miserable during the summer months. It has many climbs and a few steep hills which would be difficult for winter snowshoeing or even with crampons. Some cyclist on the trail. You can hear the highway noises crisply (hwy89) but throughout some of the hike you can also hear the river. Overall it was a nice hike.

Great views. Fun trail, but it is getting overgrown. It takes some searching at times to stay on the trail. Not a big deal with very little chance of getting lost, but be aware.

A nice network of trails that lay between the Kays Creek North Fork and South Fork. Some areas can be slippery due to steep inclines and loose gravel. Much of the trail does not have cover and is in direct sunlight all day so bring head cover and lots of water. The trail us used by hikers and trail runners and its proximity to housing makes it a high use trail network.

The views are great, the trial is open country for the first mile.
