Beautiful trail. There were quite a few cars in the parking lot when we got there but really didn't see many people on the trail which was great. Not difficult terrain but steady incline. Love the fact that you can connect to other trails once you get to the Lodge. Ended up doing the Rockgarden and Frost trails on the way down. Will definitely do again.
Pretty greenery. Very few people on trail which was a place. Saw several small children so I'd say kid friendly! The lodge was cool. Would love to visit the other trails soon.
Its pretty much a straight shot up to the lodge...depending on your pace, you can really get your heart rate up. It was a bit overcast, so the views left much to be desired. The lodge was pretty nice. A lot nicer than some of the shelters I have seen. Trials were not too muddy even after a full day of rain the night before, which was a pleasant surprise. Quick hike overall, took just under 2 hours when all was said and done (including a 15 min rest at the lodge).
this trail was beautiful. just challenging enough to get a good workout. the view at the lodge is excellent. would definitely do this again. we had a 5 year old and my hiking buddy had her 2 year old son on her back. saw a lot of families on this trail.
it was a nice trail..quite steep but all good..i enjoy it
Wonderful trail. The hike is gorgeous and includes many different kinds of mushrooms, a waterfall, and scenery to die for (I hiked this trail on July 30). Make sure you wear shoes with good tread as this trail has a ton of slippery rocks.
Round-trip it took me about 2 1/2 hours. I will definitely be back!
