Very nice trail, but I would consider this a walk through the woods instead of a hike. Trail #14 (horsethief) merges with centennial trail #89 shortly into the trail trek, so there is a variety of directions for a person to explore. All in all this trail is still a beautiful place to explore with streams, rock formations and birch trees around every corner!
Great view minus the houses from the top. I biked up this trail and would definitely come back to do so again, nice wide trail the whole way up with gradual hills. I personally wouldn't waste hiking this unless I was with little ones who can't go far, or unless you're looking for a quick getaway from town.
I am from somewhere that has some of the best hiking in the world and this hike rates right up there. Not strenuous at all. 245 total time with a lot of stops for photos. No one would call me 'fast'. But I was moving fairly steady. Nice variety of terrain and some incredible views. Also saw a couple mountain goats that kept my attention for a while! Highly recommend.
