Beautiful vistas. Trail no overly well marked.

Nice views, definitely go up clockwise per map.

Did this trail yesterday. Parking lot is currently closed for upgrades, so you have to park on highway and walk in. Very poor signage. Have never been to this area before, we walked right past the trail head and ended up at the bridge. Crossed the river and finally found a sign and realized we walked right past the trail head for this hike. We finally found our way to the trail and once on it, it was great. Good steady incline. Because of the poor signage our 5km hike ended up being over 12...oh well

This trail start is a good 3 K walk from the parking lot. The start is inside a campground and it starts going uphill and feels like it never stops. Some real scrambling and very stretchy on one mountainside. Yes the views are amazing from the top but it’s a lot of work and a bit dangerous for my liking to get to the top. Much nicer hikes around this area to do. This is my least favourite.

loved it! Some parts are extremely steep, many ways up, you can chose to climb or hike up. on the way back I took a "shortcut" and decided to try and stay on the ridge until far down the trail and climb down part of the rock. I soon realised I bite off more than I could chew so I climbed back up and looked up to find an old native man who told me if I followed the ridge further down there was an easy rock latter to get down which was great and and made it so I can avoid the steep section

Nihahi was my third hike and it was a tough one but boy was the view worth It! I recall it taking us 2.5 hrs give or take. mind you it was a really hot day. I definitely want to do it again only this time go more prepared as we ran out of water going up

About the final chance to get up here before the winter gates shut. Higher you get, the deeper the snow, just up to the high point and flag. Looking forward to developing this one in the summer to make a big loop. Completely on our own all day, so feels pretty wild.

Not very hard at all. A little bit of a grind off the start, but no biggie. Not very technically challenging either. I'm thinking who ever decided this would be rated difficult may have had one leg. Nice views up top. Moose Mountain, Prairie Mountain, Forgetmenot Ridge, Nihahi Ridge are all clearly seen from here. Any of which would have been a better choice. This may be good for trail runners, if that's your thing.

I found that the squirrels were quite loud and seemed to be quite angry. I don't speak squirrel, but I would assume what they were saying was less than polite. My dog understands squirrel contextually at best, and was quite offended. I would recommend going elsewhere for this reason if you have small children or have a sensitivity to vulgarity.

A great trail that really doesnt have an end. You can hike down this ridgeline quite far.

4 stars because this trail can be busy but the views are still excellent. Once you get to the ridge, it also doesnt really matter how far you go.

Absolutely stunning views! The trail isn’t too hard to get up, and while it is steep the elevation gain is spread out and I found it manageable. The views from the top of the ridge let you see all the way down the valley and it was definitely worth it!

Best done in dry conditions I couldn’t reach the top cause it was pretty slick from melting snow but will go back for the great views. Didn’t seem as long and steep as listed either. Would be nice if the day use area was on the other side of the campground though

a lot of exploring to do up top, check it out, take a look around.

I didn't much like this trail. It's a long walk through the campground to even get to the trail head and it's all up hill from there with tons of scrambling with some actual climbing. Was exhausted when reached the top which took away a little from the beauty of where I was.

I found this hike very difficult, but manageable. There are some very steep parts. But the views are amazing. Going down I really had to watch my footing and really didn't get to enjoy the view. Make sure you stop every once in a while and look around!

Beautiful

Satisfying hike. Did this trail before I downloaded the app.

Nice day hike, not difficult and not too overcrowded. Was surprised at number of people who bike this trail! Continue on from Prairie Loop to Powderface Ridge for some nice views of the surrounding area in all directions!

Long hiked, very windy on the top but super amazing view. Some part is steep but everyone can do it. Highly recommended!

Beautiful view

Great hike, would do it again. Lots of small
Trails so it was kind of difficult to find our way but it still took us up to the top. Saw a bear eating berries on our way down.

Tricky to find trail around the river crossing. Bring crossing shoes. Nice steady climb.

This was my very first hike. Loved the views from the top of the ridge. Worth the 2 hours it took to hike up.

Great short hike, around 2hrs going up. I wouldn't personally do this hike in runners. You do not need to scramble up on to the ridge to get nice views, and I'd say the scrambling at the top was the most difficult part if you're one to be scared of heights.

Diverse trail with a river crossing early on, so prepare accordingly. You'll also find some steep sections towards the end to make this a bit more challenging than advertised. We had trouble figuring out where the actual trail ended, so keep an eye on the map! Great views once you're up there, though, and lots of nice spots to stop for lunch.

Beautiful hike with varied scenery. My only complaint is that the trail often splits, sometimes leading to some pretty narrow and steep drops. Would recommend this hike!

Amazing...ups and downs...shaded and open...well-marked trail from the start at the very end of hwy 66. Spectacular, awe-inspiring view west from the ridge summit. 4 hours takes you up and back including a side-trip to the flag and cairn, and a rest break and stroll along the ridge.
Dog-friendly too, as my 7 yr old Shepherd cross will attest to.

A challenge to the ridge top, but worth it for the stunning views on either side. Scrambling up is manageable, coming down required some butt sliding. Still fun.

Real good work out if you make it to the very top

Love this hike! Wouldn't say it is hard, as long as you give yourself time. Views are incredible, could stay up there all day. Very busy on weekends and holidays.
