Absolutely beautiful — loved the giant sequoias, the abundant butterflies, the soothing shade, and all the creek crossings (on wooden planks). Our dog was very happy.

Great trail! Well maintained. Hiked round trip from Camp Nelson to Quaking Aspen campground. The last mile to Quaking Aspen is a workout. Amazing giant sequoias throughout the trail and beautiful river.

HikingNo shadeRocky

Great trail! About 20 min prior to getting to the trail, which by the way you can park car across from where the trail starts, theres a sign prior to making turn that says Brush Creek....you’ll probably lose cell service. So plan ahead. Good trail really rocky but good grip shoes will do the trick. So as i was going there were 2 trails that will either bring you closer to the stream or just above it. Took the high route which is keeping to the left. Got to about the big pool and stopped there and enjoyed the view, nice and bit cold but worth getting your feet in. On the way back to low trail, hugs the stream a bit more and ran into another pool. Less cold lol. Ran into a few other hikers and told me about the leaches that were in the pool i stopped at before. Luckily none for me. And then finish the trail staying close to the stream. Overall great trail, no shade but the stream is right if you need to cool off or wet your hat or towel.

Went last weekend, very nice and shaded, warm but manageable because of the shade. Saw lots of birds even a bear! Little creek crosses the trail multiple times, very pretty!

It was super easy hike. Don’t normally do easy hikes like these but the views and natural hot springs made all worth it. Definitely worth bringing water shoes and a towel. The desire to get in will be inevitable.

Not a good starter trail. Serious climb then serious descend to walking bridge at the river

We really enjoyed this trail and our campsite. While the sign at the entrance said no overnight camping - not sure what to make of it - there were at least four groups camping. We didn’t build a fire, just used our camp stove. Hike in is easy, all downhill. About 4 miles to the George Bush tree. There are a few campsites right before, at, and after the tree. We counted 5-6 with fire pits but there may be more, and obviously more sites if you don’t care about the fire pit. There were a lot of bugs (skeeters, flies, etc) and I unfortunately forgot bug repellent. Stream had flowing water. Hike out was harder - probably moderate - because of the 1500ft gain over 4 miles. Overall beautiful scenery, and great camp sites. And it was surprisingly not crowded even though it was 4th of July weekend. Would definitely recommend.

Great trail with amazing views! Make sure to go left following the ridge NOT up when the trail branches about half way. Otherwise it’s very easy to follow.

Super difficult this time of year. Super hot and no shade. We left at 10am and hiked 5 miles of it. Returned at 1pm. Good parking and easy to find.

I was told to get dropped off at the top of the hike and walk it down .... I didn’t listen we walked up and about half ways up decided we were tired and turned around. Amazing views. Next time I will get dropped off at the top.

Beautiful hike, plenty of good spots to stop and enjoy the views, and definitely one I'll be sharing with friends next time I'm back!

Nice trail and follows the river, during this time of the year would definitely recommend hitting it first thing in the morning, it was a little crowded with this being 4th of July weekend. Would like to go back and explore a little more next time. It is rocky and a few steep spots but nothing to hard. Have fun

I’ve been on this hike twice it’s a great trail very exhausting though and a long hike but totally worth it once you get to the nice pools probably midway I’m guessing. We always have a lot of fun hiking out this way but it is very strenuous so take lots of water.

6/20/20 This trail was absolutely beautiful. There are tons of giant Sequoia’s and the trail is mostly shaded. I took three kids on the hike with no issues. There were a lot of people on the trail that day including mountain bikers.

Backpacking

Such a great hike! We backpacked in. From the gate to the GHWB tree was four miles. There's an amazing campsite 3.75 in, right by the creek. It is an easy hike in, much harder out. The climb out is worth it; so many towering Sequoias. We only saw five other people total over the course of two days. We went Monday to Tuesday. Epic trip for our family!

HikingNo shade

Do not hike this during summer! horrible idea. My husband and I thought it'd be a nice hike if we started early but it got really hot very quickly, no shade, and we had to turn around about the end of the hike. We also did not know it's an actual road and you definitely have to hike through the bushes to get to the water part of this hike. I think we'll try this again during the cool winter days. We did 5 miles altogether. It was a butt kicker.

Hiked about 4 miles in and out. At the 2ish mile mark you’ll be able to see the bottom part of the seven tea cups (though this would just look like a waterfall of you didn’t know otherwise). Beautiful trail that follows the river with ups and downs. Would recommend.

HikingNo shadePrivate propertyRocky

Not what I was expecting but turned out to be a fun trail! The parking lot is across the bridge from the trail head. We walked under the bridge then up and over. You’ll see the trailhead sign and will have to jump over a fence to get to it (odd I know).. From there we stayed to our left towards the dam. We went about 3 miles in. Never made it to the dam but traversed across the hillside. There were pretty moments but I wish the trail had followed down closer to the river. Be advised there’s cow poo and a barbed wire fence you’ll have to cross.

Hiking

This trail is fun and pretty easy for the first few miles. It would be a super idea for a picnic at first or second creek crossing. Around mile 3 it begins a steady incline that definitely gives you a cardio workout all the way to the top. There were times I told friends hiking with me it felt like my heart was beating in my mouth! That’s some workout! There are perfect photo opportunities. Lots of beautiful wildflowers, some butterflies, and a lizard or two. Don’t forget water and possibly other hydration. I went through 48 liters and wished I had more. Also, a few snacks are highly recommended if you’re going to the top. Round trip really is about 16 miles. Bucket list Get out and love nature!

Lovely hike down to the GB tree, a workout on the way back up. Would've been a 5 star except the popularity amongst mountain bikers means a lot of extra dust.

HikingNo shade

First off, the trail isn’t the most difficult but it is definitely not easy. Our recording showed 3.5 miles to get to the very top where the radio towers were. 360 degree clear view in every direction. High altitudes so it take a moment to acclimate but no problem after that.

Trail was a bit rocky and difficult to manage for an older woman. Water and trees were beautiful! Some hot Springs were too hot to go in. Otherwise, had a great day!

Was a gorgeous day. Gates are open on rancheria for access. Trail is more marked toward top relative to past few years since fire. Any ol vehicle will make it to the base but I recommend at least 6 inches of ground clearance to be sure. My map shows a bit of my drive as I forgot to turn off my tracker after coming down the mountain.
