    Mike Hoffman reviewed Raintree Trail

    5 months ago

    Decent hike. The steady climb started to wear on my lungs. The tree is amazing with plenty of spots to sit down and relax for a bit. From here we went to the Mummy Springs...ehh, not all that great. Next time we’ll cut off to Fletcher Peak.

    Mike Hoffman reviewed Mummy Spring Trail

    5 months ago

    The trail was well marked and easy to walk. It’s a pretty steady incline for the first 3/4 or so but want too bad. I’m not sure I would take my 8 y/o’s on it and I did see some younger kids at the bottom half but not many people on the second half. The spring was barely dripping...as expected. Some of the views were good but not great like I would have wanted. Next time I’ll cut off to Fletcher Peak (a little before the right turn at the big rain tree).

    Mike Hoffman reviewed South Loop Trail

    about 6 years ago

    Hiked the South Loop on October 6, 2012 and it was perfect weather. It was 50 degrees when I started at 7:00 am and stayed that way on my trip to the peak then half way down before it warmed up. I didn't see anyone on my way up but passed a lot of folks (about 20) on my way down.
    There is still construction at the trail head so I started at the Cathedral Rock Lower Trailhead which added just under a mile. From the parking area for the Cathedral Rock area, go up the steps and turn left then when you hit the well groomed rock path turn left again and your on the trail. I got to the peak in 4 hours and it took me 3.5 hours to get back down.....plan for a long day.
    There are plenty of camping spots after the switchbacks (about the 5th mile). You can find trees and terrain to shelter your tent from the wind should it whip up.
    The trail is well defined and I didn't need to reference my map once. I had a GPS but I only used it to track my distance and elevation.
    Don't get discouraged by the switch backs at the start, once your out of them its well worth it. The last 3/4 of a mile was a bit of a challenge for me as I wasn't accustomed to the 11,500' elevation but it wasn't impossible. The view form the peak is awesome.
    Mummy is next...get to the peak and you'll see why I say that.
