Beautiful views and wonderful pine smells! The creek is running nice and full, so be sure to find a good spot to cross. Ignore those who say it’s impossible to cross, my party had a 90 year old veteran. We hiked more than half the trail and really enjoyed it!

This is a beautiful walk in the woods. Well marked and great for any skill level. The trail is dry with no mud. Great trail if you need to meditate and relax.i added on the Pat Mullen trail which was an easy ascent. The view is slightly obscured due to the trees, but still very pretty.

Mostly all uphill- rocky- but nice views at the top. Also, well marked so we knew where we were!

As everyone says, this trail is not well marked. We would not have found the way if we had not had the GPS tracking on this app. A wide logging road at first. We went counterclockwise. The woods were pine and juniper with very little foliage underneath. We had our German Shorthairs with us and could see no reason to have them on leash. They have excellent recall. The woods being so open allowed us to always see them. About 2/3 of the hike is on a logging road, the rest on a small narrow trail that is much more intimate. The trail gets rockier as it reaches the top, with nice views. It was always good footing and no shear drop offs. I would do this trail again. I think it is especially nice for hiking with dogs.

Lots of horse traffic during wet season leaves the trail with huge horse hoof holes and difficult to follow. We lost the trail and ended up going around the entire Scott reservoir.

nice trail. the scenery was great. but the trails weren't marked very well. the river was high so we we're forced to turn back.

Good trail, well marked. Not the prettiest, but great exercise.

We started at the trailhead parking lot and did an out and back along the rim to the Mogollon Campground and back. Making it about an 8.4 mile round trip hike. Beautiful views!

Some mud and standing water due to the heavy snow this area received this year at the beginning of the trail. Parts were rocky and the end was paved.

We hiked this end of March 2019 and the river was so deep, wide and wild it was quite uncomfortable crossing it. Kids and older people wouldn't have made it across

We came end of March mud mud mud gave up half way. Not even a bird to see.

Hiked with my kids and dog. We went a half mile each way. We enjoyed the view and wild horse sighting.

Didn’t finish! Wanna come back so we can!

Great hike. Saw wild horses and deer...lots of tracks for other animals too. Will need to go back when things dry out. Lots of mud to trek around.

love this hike!

Creek is full! It’s raging! Awesome to see but impossible to cross and use the trail.

Hiked this trail yesterday, 3/9, and almost made it all the way up to the Rim Rd. The creek was amazing, it's next to you the whole time. It was flowing fast and had a great current. You do have to cross the creek in 4-5 sections, so expect to get wet. As others have noted, the snow hasn't all melted yet. There are parts of the trail that you can't see due to the snow still being present. Look for the rock formations and white diamonds posted on trees to guide you. In fact, towards the top of the trail, I was pretty much sinking into 2 feet of snow with every step I took. I would definitely do this trail in the summer, or whenever snow hasn't just fallen. :)

Not a real stellar trail but ok. Pretty easy-moderate throughout but the elevation does add a degree of difficulty if you're a flatland person. Not terribly scenic until the top, which brings you to a viewpoint you could drive to. I rather prefer trails that bring me places only reachable on foot, although this time of year the rim road is closed so technically it still fits the bill.

It was pretty lonely trail, but very nice scenery.

We saw a bear tracks, wolf tracks, elk tracks, horse and cow tracks! Plus not to mention numerous wild horses roaming around got even within 30 yards of them. Beautiful scenery quiet forest lot of dense trees not necessarily able to see very far out but still not in the last quiet and beautiful hike to go down.

I've done this trail a couple of times. Enjoyable, decent views, nothing particularly incredible. It was fairly quiet, didn't pass anyone on the trail the second time, and the first time I only passed one person going the opposite direction. It is very well marked. Nice greenery. Prone to getting mucky in wet weather.

Awesome end of the year (2018) trail run. It was great to have Alltrails app because there are unmarked trails and crossroads throughout this trail.

Did this with my dog. Overall a great trail. It gets harder towards the end. Just be careful with the sliding rocks and you'll be golden. Beautiful sights all along the trail. I was kind of disappointed when I reached the end of the trail, I was expecting a nice view from above but it's just a patch of grass, a dirt road and a bunch of trees.

Great hike through a forest of ponderosas! Dogs loved it, too.
