This is a great trail to take on alone. Lots to see, lots to hike on. Great starter hike. On a side note... There is an active bee hive on the main trail. Use the Cat Creek loop trail to avoid it. There is only one fork in the trail and you will take a right to head back to the main trail missing the hive. However if you don't care about them the entire area around the hive has pink tape around it as a warning.
This is one that is great for trail running too. I ran most of the way back other than the steep hills lol great thing is it's not an incredibly busy trail either
Great trail. Plan on exploring the rest if the entire area throughout the summer.
This was a serene trail. It was worth the up hill climbs. Camping at the a tributary greywolf and creek was just amazing. Highly recommended.
Easy trail. Not a whole lot to see. Not very popular. Didn't run into anyone until I was half way back.
Did an 2 night stay next to the river. Somewhat surprised to see it listed as hard, because from what I remember there was only one spot where the dirt was a bit loose and we had to mind our footing, but for the most part it was a relatively easy trek. The river was big and beautiful, and made for a great camp site.
Did the lower trail. A lot of great camping spots and so many butterflies. The river is beautiful. The end of the trail had a lot of down trees.
Me and the wife did the lower trail on 4/7/15. the trail has a lot of ups and downs. there were a few scetchy areas near the end with fallen logs and narrow walking paths on ridges but all negotiable with a little determination. lots of wonderful spots to camp. everything was beautiful and we could only imagine how much more beautiful it would be if everything was in bloom. All in all well worth the hike and we can't wait to go back. Hopefully with some more time to camp and hang.
Early 2000 I helped WTA re-route the trailhead. This is a wonderful trail but has to be done from two locations because of a bridge being out and no safe crossing. There are a lot of great side hikes off the Gray Wolf Trail.
