I've done this trail both in April and January. Both times I drove my 1996 Subaru Legacy and did not bottom out, contrary to other reviews. It snowed a ton before my January hike and I managed to make it in without high centering. I like this trail because it's secluded. The views are good at certain parts but it's all below tree line so don't expect vast landscape views. The trail merges with another at the end, so you can continue to explore once you've hiked about 3.5 miles in. The trail is much more difficult on snow shoes, partly because at certain spots it's sloped and narrow so it's easy to slide sideways. A good climb in snow shoes, my legs were burning.

I went about 2.5 miles in to where it crosses the creek and there's a nice view. Can't wait to hike this again and go further!

Great winter hike. I got a late start so I didn't finish the hike, but what I saw was wonderful! I think the trail is a little easer than the rating suggests. The trail was pretty visible even in the snow. This is a great hike that is worth another visit in the spring/summer.

It's a beautiful trail. It's quite enclosed with many trees. Perfect for tree/forest lovers. Had gorgeous sites/veiws. I think it was the perfect difficulty for all levels of hiking experience. It is kind of a "hidden gem"

Great trail -- we started at the pass and hiked five miles in to the junction of Abyss trail. Note if you start at the pass, at 1 mile in there is a sharp left turn to stay on the trail (what you came on so far goes straight.) Look for the tall poles and follow them down the hill to the creek and beyond. Fantastic views and very quiet on a sunny Thursday.

Great hike if you find the trail -- at about 1 mile, there is a left turn (look for the tall poles heading off to the left.) Follow that trail, much smaller than the one you start on, and you will be on Rosalie.

People with dogs are some of the most disrespectful jerks. Clearly dogs must be kept on a leash but we are living in an era where people feel entitled to ignore this simple request as pictures on this trail would indicate.

I have not been up the path for two years. I forget how nice it is hiking by the stream. could not go the whole way 12th bridge was down we did not want to get wet.
