    Allen Poppa reviewed Shrine Ridge Trail

    22 days ago

    My wife and I hiked this trail yesterday. Views of surrounding mountains & fields of wild flowers were awesome. Trail was a little rocky in places but not bad. At least 1/2 of the trail was in the shade. Trail was somewhat busy but not crowded.

    We will definitely do this hike again in the future.

    We enjoyed this trail this morning. It is a little rocky but not bad. Trail is mostly in the shade or partly shaded (60 - 75% shaded) and that is great on a warm day.

    Initial mile of this trail provided awesome views of the valley & lakes below as well as the mountains to the south.

    Lily Pad pond and the lake near by were interesting & scenic.

    My wife and I really enjoyed this hike today. It was kind of rocky in several areas but worth the required effort for sure - just be aware of the many rocks & tree roots along the trail. We had to scramble a little near the waterfalls and at the end. Bugs were a minor issue but not horrible. Again the beautiful scenery made everything worth doing.

    The waterfalls were amazing & beautiful. The stream runs beside much of this trail and provides many scenic views and some very comforting noise from nature.

    This was a beautiful but somewhat challenging hike. Pretty rocky most of the time and considerable elevation gain involved. The effort required is certainly worth the results & the scenery. The waterfalls at the top of the trail are awesome. The stream running a long side the trail is a huge plus.

    Trail was busy but not crowded. This trail is ‘a must’ if you enjoy waterfalls & mountain streams.

    Nice hike! Trail was in good shape overall but there were a few rocky & muddy spots. Scenery (mountains, lake, meadows & stream) was awesome with lots of wildflowers everywhere along much of this trail. Waterfalls were a great bonus at the end of the trail. Other hikers were polite & friendly and the trail wasn’t crowded.

    We saw some wildlife - a beaver and a deer with a fawn.

    It took us 3 hours to complete this 5.9 mile out & back trail. We will definitely do this hike again.

    Very nice hike for my wife and I. It was a little difficult due to the elevation gain but if you don’t hurry and rest occasionally it isn’t too much. Some shade along the trail. Great scenery along the trail which follows Beaver Creek most of the time and Beaver Lake was awesome. We would definitely do this hike again.
