Nice paved trail until you make it to the waterfall look out. If you have children take them down the rock path to the stream and then climb up to the waterfall. Wear shoes with traction! Rocks are loose. There is a narrow path off of the paved trail to get to the falls but it’s unsafe for children or maybe even pets. Went last weekend and it was a beautiful, crisp day.

our first time here going up was a great cardio workout make sure and pack a light long sleeve for sunny or windy days.

Super easy. Mostly a fireroad hike.

Easy. Nice. But easy to get lost too. We somehow turned it into a 15 miler....in the dark.

Great trail we went with our 2.5 yo that was able to do the bulk of the trail and we we're able to carry her the rest of the way.

My first time going there. made it all the way to the top. Worth the walk, great view.

Nice rolling walk at the bottom of canyon, quiet with not much use. If you climb the switchback trail you will get a real cardio vascular workout.

I love this trail. It is never crowded. The views are most optimal. The switchbacks up Telegraph are gorgeous and the Peak is lovely with a small area between the rocks to grab a bite and look at Mt. Baldy. You can see the green ski hut and just wonder at the Bowl.

Well maintained dirt road, easy to park and find trail head, wide trail and when you get to the last 1/3 where the rock trail begins the terraine gets more challemging but we saw a 4 yr old doing it so really not hard at all. Great trail day!

Love this trail! It’s so beautiful, lots of scenery. My 5 year old son hiked it and he loved every second!

was looking forward to the trial but it was closed today 11/01/18

Free climbed the 3rd tier. Super fun trail and not difficult at all considering half the trail is paved.

Convenient trail for people who don’t wanna drive to the boonies to hike and a good workout. The trail have distance markers which makes it an excellent place for timed training

Amazing Hiking Trail !

my happy place

Just got back from a 3 day in and out from Two Harbors to Parsons Landing. Perfect time of year to do this trip weather wise and crowd wise.

I did this one again. Only did A free miles. Took my dog (older). So I cut it short. Will do the full hike next visit.

great hike

First few miles are flat and kind of boring the last 1.5 is where the fun starts. Took my dog. Just a few spots she needed to be lifted to help her up or down. Not sure I would take a dog I couldn’t carry but I did see a few people with bigger dogs so they must have found a way around the bigger rocks. Fun trail even though the water wasn’t flowing.

Hike this trail up to the Blackstar canyons sign and then walked back to parking lot. This is a very dusty walk your shoes will come back brown. best to do it after a rain fall when it’s not as dusty. It’s mostly a dirt road so it’s not that hard until you get to where the falls are and then you have to do some off hiking and climbing over boulders. All uphill hiking , bring good shoes you don’t mind getting dirty and lots of water. You’ll see peacocks on your way up there and cross 2 bridges. 24hr trail. In summer watch out for snakes on dirt road.

Closed on the weekdays for construction
