A very nice hiking trail with some great views

great hike and not hard at all! well marked and easy to follow the trail. The views from the top are amazing! I think doing the loop will worth it even more! bring warm clothes if you intend to do it in nov-march...the wind is chilly!

Amazing little trail plenty of routes to take. side note it is possible to combine this trail with Willow Lake to do a point to point trail. usually one car parked at willow lake the other near the constellation trail. if you start at the bottom of willow lake hike just about the entire loop to the marsh and double back. stay to the right and take the outer loop. there is a trail over the hill separating these two areas. doing that comes out to close to 10 Miles very much worth it.

Nice intermediate hike.

Nice trail, a little bit of everything along the way. My Fitbit tracked closer to 7.2 miles and we really didn’t go
off trail.

A favorite spot of mine, very beautiful and lots of wildlife

this is a trail that is actually a road that you can drive to the fire tower and the part that actually is at trail goes nowhere.

Constellation loop trail was an enjoyable hike through the granite formations of the dells. There was enough change in grade, trail contour, and view to keep the hike interesting. It took moderate effort to complete the loop.

I love this trail. Great birding and it’s easy to follow with enough friendly foot traffic and cell service so I don’t mind doing it alone.

Cool trail system in the middle of town though not very expansive.

Good hike but it is actually 322 not 332 that you connect with. The dirt road getting to Forest Road 51 is not the best. Also when leaving you can go the other direction and meet up Copper Basin. Beautiful scenery along the two miles dirt road. The roads are best with a 4x4

Wonderful, easy hike! Although there are shady areas of the trail, most of it is in the sun. We hiked in the morning while it was still cool so as to avoid the worst of the heat. I would recommend this :)

There are a handful of side trails that cross across the center of the loop, making it possible to cut the trail short if need be. The hike is very easy, good for kids and dogs as well as anyone else. Plenty of places to sit on a rock or a bench.

Half of the loop is within the granite rocks and is a little more steep (although only slightly). Follow the painted white dots on the rocks to stay on the trail. Kids will love rock climbing and exploring along the tall spires. At the highest point, you can look out toward Granite Dells and see Hwy 89. This trail never leaves the sound of the highway, so if you're looking for solitude, this isn't it!

Great hike if you're not looking to exhaust yourself and just want to enjoy nature a bit :)

Did this trail by myself and I’m not generally a solo hiker, although the views made it worth my while. I did the trail in 58 minutes, about 2.1 miles in the outer loops. There are a lot of areas you can just stop, listen, and take the beauty in. Nature really heals the mind, body and soul. Next time I will be doing the inner connecting trails.

Great hike.

Did the whole outer loop this morning, clocked in at 1.9 miles. The trail branches out into a few inner trails that connect to the outer loop, I'll have to try those next time. Great hike and awesome views.

Did the whole loop once before, decided to do the fun half this time which includes the Steps and Red Bridge. Saw a couple dead snakes, even tho it didn't affect the hike, the water height was much higher than it was in March. Some over grown vegetation bc of the rains could block some parts of the trail, just follow the white dots and you'll be fine.

Its a great technical short ride. you can ride all trails in 1.5 hours. Lots of black & blue runs. you can always walk your bike over the real techical areas if you dont ride them.

Great hike. Great workout. Great views from the lookout. Definitely steep and rocky the last mile so where boots if you have them.

Wonderful hike. Lots to look at and plenty to keep you engaged! I will be sure to do it again!

I love this trail, there are so many variations of it, every hike is different. After the rains.lots of pools with tadpoles. great way to spend a hour or two. people you meet are always friendly.
