    Pleasant easy stroll. Path is easy enough for strollers and wheelchairs. The boardwalk is fun. So are the Pokestops and gyms ;)

    The views are worth it but the path near the top is a little tricky with all those boulders to cross. I really enjoyed Bloods Lake. I would go again just for that area alone however the dog poop bags were very unpleasant to have to pick up. So disgusting! Please pick up after your pets. Do NOT leave the bags on the side to pick up later because you may forget and it pollutes the area and makes it unpleasant for hikers walking by when they are trying to enjoy the scenery. Thanks!

    Easy to get to, didn’t see any rattlesnakes and the top is fun with the flags and a sunrise to start off your day.

    Great view of PTC and nice challenge with the catwalk at the end which explains the difficulty rating. Other than that the journey there wasn’t strenuous.

    Wasn’t aware there was rock scrambling the last 1/2 mile to the summit. Good thing I had gloves. Pretty darn steep but the views at the top are worth it. As a mom, I recommend this for 14+

    Got bored and went back. The cryptobiotic soil with red agate in it was cool but I wish they'd put up LNT signs so people wouldn't trample it. So sad to see 100 years of growth ruined by careless (probably ignorantly innocent) steps. Please stay on the trail! LNT.org

    Karen Young reviewed Little Wild Horse Bell Canyon Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    Went on 11-11-17 and there was no water to wade thru. I would rate it as difficult simply because 8 miles is rather long and there were many times I had to scramble up/down so it was a full body workout. Not to mention a lack of signs and markers so thank goodness Alltrails works even though there was no service out there! Finished in 3.5 hours because I was worried about it getting dark and I was solo.

    I enjoyed the quiet lair more than the valley of hoodoos simply because of the amount of kids running around yelling and climbing on everything. After the lair I look the Carmel Canyon side trail then back to the road.

    The root wall I had to scale at the end was interesting. Beautiful waterfall and didn't take as long as I thought to get there and back. $6 Canyon fee

    Karen Young reviewed Lake Catherine Via Catherine Pass Trail

    about 2 years ago

    We got to the trailhead at 4pm so we were lucky to get parking. The trail itself is beautiful and well-maintained as well as uncrowded. There is a pungent plant growing halfway thru. We set up camp on the southwest corner of the lake along with several other groups. The lake is like a bowl so it was an amphitheater when it came to noise but everyone seemed to notice that and were respectful although the young kids had a hard time remembering ;) Only saw 2 mosquitoes. I really wanted to summit Sunrise Peak but my hubby said no so I'll have to come back another time just as a hiker.

    Wonderful except for the trash - we packed out a big bag full. Please don't litter! Thank you!

    Karen Young reviewed Willow Heights Trail

    about 2 years ago

    Packed out a bucket full of trash - literally a 5 gallon pail of trash was up there along with a broken lid cooler, a nonstick griddle and a cast iron skillet left buried in the coals. Granted we had to haul it a mile down the mountain but now I have a nice clean (free) skillet. Pack it out and also please remember campfires aren't allowed here; we counted several rings. It's short enough that rangers can easily check on you and we don't want any more forest fires. Bring a lightweight camp stove instead (MSR pocketrocket is user friendly)

    Karen Young reviewed Maple's Box Canyon Trail

    about 2 years ago

    This place is unique for sure and well populated, however, if you're not familiar with climbing and don't have the shoes/gear for that then you'll only be able to make it halfway by yourself. I was stumped by the slick boulder that was taller than my head. I couldn't figure how to safely climb it alone so I turned back and plan to take a climbing class soon. Great place for rock climbers; not so much for hikers

    Karen Young reviewed North Mount Elbert Trail

    about 2 years ago

    This was my longest hike in a single day and the hardest because of elevation gain and altitude. We took it slow. My cousin had her dog so that was fun. Bring at least 2 liters of water and start early to avoid heat and the mosquitos above treeline. Several false summits but the top is worth it - breathtaking!

    Karen Young reviewed Mount Evans and Mount Spalding Loop Trail

    about 2 years ago

    This was a challenge being my second 14er. We started early and did Spalding then scrambled up to West Evans and last Mount Evans then took a different way down so it was 4 miles. We zigzagged down the .5 mile dotted-line trail and finished walking on the road for a little to get back to our car. Great weather today. We didn't use microspikes since there were only a few really short areas of snow. Sticks helped though. $5 parking fee
