My favorite place to go walking and trail running.

Very easy and fun trail! My dog loved it :)

Went up when it was frozen over with some friends. It's tough getting up and back down with all the snow, but so worth it. Some people hike up and sled / snowboard down. You get to walk around on a big frozen lake once you make it all the way. Really awesome.

This trail used to be much more pleasant but it has become over-travelled. The mountainside is being destroyed by people creating their own trails going straight down the fall line at every possible switchback on the hill. It’s eroding quickly, plants are being trampled, and nobody seems to care for it.

Pretty decent. Get there early for parking

Heavily trafficked, not much wildlife, or scenery other than the rock formations.

A simple strait forward walk in the wood.

It was really great hike. Short and kind of easy

Love it. Multiple trails to chose from to vary intensity

Mar 2 2018. Fun trail. Crowded but not too bad. It was icey and wet but manageable

Fun day hike! Only downside would be the amount of dog poop everywhere.

Trees and snow make it super pretty. Easy quick hike close to town.

Highly trafficked out & back or a loop. This is one of my favorite trails so far. Very easy and perfect for my small dog that gets easily tired. Great for beginners.

Very muddy after the snow. But happy for the great weather!!!

Great open views. Dog friendly. Pretty easy hike.

Very easy, beautiful hike. If you’re looking for something non strenuous and short this is a good one. Fun to sled down the hill in the winter too!

easy and relaxed

Easy hike with unique/pretty views. Lots of cattails. Drop down to the parking lot at the turning point of the trail to include seeing the the reservoir as well

We hiked this on Sunday afternoon and it was windy, cold, and awesome. Be advised that there is . $5 fee to park in the nearby lots as they are on private land. Cash and checks are the only form of payment accepted. There are two lots, on one to the north and one to the south of the trail head. It's a quick walk to the top, just keep to the main trail and avoid what look to be off road vehicle trails that veer off to the right. I think there are two on the way up. The top was WINDY. I'm guessing around 50mph gusts and a steady wind of about 30mph. The kind of wind you can lean into and it will keep you upright. The temp was around 9 degrees and with the those kind of winds we didn't stay up too long- we didn't have the gear necessary to hang out in conditions like that. But it was beautiful up there. We shall definitely return for more exploration!

Easy hiking once on top of the Mesa. Definitely go to Golden Summit trail/stairs. Wonderful views from this point!

It’s great if you’re looking for a relatively easy trail with great views. The trail was a little packed down for snowshoes, but slick enough that you’d be better off with a bit of extra traction. Just be prepared for a lot of wind at the lake.

Nice easy hike, some patches of snow and ice on the trail.

Snowshoed to the lake today and part way up to glacier. Lots of snow still, very windy. Beautiful views! Everyone says it's easy but felt it a bit challenging for us Minnesotans (but the cold didn't bother us), maybe since we are still adjusting to elevation. It was a steady climb to the lake and steeper to the glacier. Want to make a trip back in Spring or Summer. Ran into several people even on a Thursday afternoon.

Good exercise, cools ruins, lots of people... took the Parmalee loop for little more quiet

Traction would have been nice, but not necessary. A go to when you only have an hour of free time to get in a good view.

Nice trail with a spectacular view at Lyons Overlook. Icy as of 1/28 so bring crampons.

Road is clear until the next snow, never even considered using 4WD. Brought up 8 people and a bunch of sleds, and had a blast! Ended up sledding down the glacier onto the frozen lake, sleds are a must here if you're up for the adventure!

Very nice hike

Great short hike. Plenty of amazing views. Bring a lunch and stay awhile, highly recommend for kids and dogs.
