Overall excellent hike to the hotsprings! The trail was well cared for but a little steep and slippery in the snow.

This trail was "Spectacular " I will be back many times to come!

Beautiful snowshoe hike with amazing views of Beauty Bay and the Selkirk Mountains. Trail is very narrow. Great snowpack, and no one else on the Trail. We'll be back for sure!

North loop A is around 4 miles and loop B is around 6.5 miles, you can do either or combine. It is groomed in winter for fat bikes, but you can also x/c ski or snowshoe. The north loops allow dogs, which is a great option to share outdoor fun. Leashes are REQUIRED. There can be a fair amount of users so be respectful. There are additional x/c-only groomed trails south of the highway but they do not permit dogs.

I ski'd the B loop with my dog on the day after New Years in 15-degree weather and ran into 2 other skiers and 4 fat-bikers.

Enjoyable rolling terrain with a couple moderate hills to ski down and climb. 90% is winding through timber which is a great atmosphere, especially with a fresh snow load on the tree branches.

Farragut is a state park, so daily use fee or annual vehicle sticker is required.

Did this hike about 3 weeks ago. You will definitely want to bring your snow shoes as we found out, the snow knee deep in some areas. As previously stated, hike has moderate incline with switch backs throughout, but man is that vista at the top worth it!

The service roads to get up are a bit dicey if you don't have a 4x4.

Today, the trail was fantastic! I brought snowshoes, but didn't need them. I climbed all of the way to the top with ice cleats on my hiking boots. The snow on the trail has been well packed by snow shoes. I saw an elderly couple with only hiking boots and hiking poles, who seemed to be managing just fine. The snow on the mountain and trees looked magical.

just ran the snow covered red and grey loops today, very nice trail system!

I decided to make this my last hike of 2016. I did it in a snowstorm, with snowshoes. I managed about 8 miles before my legs had enough. This is a hardcore trail in the snow. What a wonderful trail to end out my hiking year!

Before you make this hike, do a bit of research. Study the map before driving to the trail head. There are rivers, streams, alpine lakes, mountains, and abundant wildlife to see on this hike. This would be a fantastic camping / hiking trail in fairer weather.

I plan to come back in the spring, and will be prepared to make this a two-day hike.

Perfect stroll along the river, regardless of the season. It's well maintained and you'll definitely spot wildlife and waterfowl along the way. For those that love to bike, sorry but there's no biking permitted on this section. Don't forget to bring your pup along for this one!

Amazing and treasured piece of the Earth.

Today, I managed about half of this trail on snowshoes. The snow was several feet deep, and the trail hard to find. This would be a fierce hike, even in fair weather. I will be back to conquer this, come spring!

Beautiful trail to a beautiful lake

A great hiking trail, just like red loop. This one is quicker but brings you to a lot of the same scenery. It's a very basic trail that would be great for young children or just a quick hike when you need to get out of the house. The only downside is everytime I've hiked this trail it usually has other people on it. Otherwise a great and fun hiking trail.
