It's a great workout, and the snowy tree cover is beautiful right now!
Great place to hike year round! This podcast sums it up pretty well: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/snowshoeing-snow-friendly/id1142336821?i=1000379208229&mt=2
There's better trails with better sites to see.
To be honest I was not a big fan of this hike. The trail was difficult to follow and was super overgrown in places. There were a lot of little side trails so it was hard to ever really know if you were going the "right" way. I decided to turn back after getting turned around a few times because I didn't want to get too lost. I may have been a little more apt to keep at it if I hadn't been by myself.
We went in the winter, when there was a lot of snow on the ground...not a good idea. We couldn't get very far as it was too slippery.
The steepest is legit. but awesome hike, great foliage. we were up in 2:20 and down in 1:20.
Trail is VERY overgrown. The map on here doesn't take you to an overlook, you have to keep going up a pretty steep face to get to where you can see anything, and even then it's not a clear view.
It's more of a scramble than a hike, but still enjoyable and fun.
A super lush hike once you get about halfway to the top, but gets more overgrown the farther you go. I would definitely recommend pants!
Brought the dogs, and luckily the creek is still running once you get about 1.5 miles up the trail.
nice hike. I found at one time why this got its name... spent a few hours in the morning trying to locate the cave entrance. not sure why people think going into small holes is fun. any way hiked to the saddle then around to Millcreek and hitched a ride out to my car. it was a good hike...
