Wonderful trail with a great balance of ups/downs/easy steps and rocks to scramble over. Nothing too difficult and a fantastic dog trail. Nice views.

Upon getting to the Walker Trail intersection I recommend taking a left on Walker Loop for a short hike down to the river. Cross the bridge over the river and continue about 100 feet and have a lunch break on the newly installed bench.

Loved this trial, one of my favorites! Challenging because of the grade but still very enjoyable! The views were amazing, seeing both sides of the continental divide was awe inspiring. 10/10 will go again!!
