This is a really nice trail, it's out of the way so there's not much traffic.

Some parts are fairly steep and parts were somewhat grown over in late summer, there was running water in September still, good for a pet or if you need to refill with a filter.

Hiked on 11/04/17. No parking where All Trails begins. Have to park at the Brush Creek TH 1 mile prior. So add 2 miles RT. Some snow, rain, fog, and a little sun made for a very pleasant November walk in the woods. Never saw another person! Didn't know there'd be splendid views of Teocali, as it was too foggy in the morning to realize it should be visible from the parking lot. But near the end of the big descent, the weather cleared and the peak showed itself. Magical! Would recommend this hike in the winter, but wouldn't waste a Summer day in CB doing measly little this one. Besides, in the Summer it's probably crowded by bikers.

I could explore this place for months and still not see everything. It's quite a climb, but the views are incredible!

went to the falls then kept going to the end.

Started from the Hartman’s parking lot and reached Aberdeen Quarry, then crossed the stream and got into the nice single track of the Aberdeen Loop, which was my final destination today. Used the double track roads to go home quickly and easily after the long ride. This route goes deep in HR but enjoyable! Make sure you have enough water to go this much far.

Just gorgeous, and ends at a truly spectacular overlook. However, wouldn't call it "hard" ~ more like moderate.

Beautiful drive!

Nice short hike.

Awesome trail with incredible views! Hiked to Judd Falls and then continued on the Copper Creek Trail for a total of six miles out and back. Great hike! Lots of "cow pies" and a couple instances where I had to go around some cattle but no big deal.

trail is easy, maybe (2) S-M obstacles, but bumpy. since its a pass, obviously the views are amazing. if you'd like to see a video of the pass i have one here, but the second half is half of coney flats trail:

no lift
no locker
no sway bar

This is a beautiful trail. Yes, it is muddy from the horse traffic, but well worth it. Bring an old pair of hiking boots and embrace the muck. Because it gets so much rain, the wildflowers are tall and plentiful. The aspen forest is full of huge trees and there is a lake that is completely covered with grass. There are excellent views of the Castles at the beginning and equally impressive views of the Anthricites as you continue up the trail. Fall is a wonderful time to do this hike. The Castles in the fall are breathtaking, and this trail offers the best views of it and it is drier. Once you hike up the steep hill at the trailhead, the trail mellows out into a much more gradual ascent.

Did this trail today from the Elkton side all the way up to Gothic Mountain Summit...Beautiful views, but not for the faint of heart. About halfway to Gothic Mountain, the trail is VERY steep. And the second false summit of Gothic Mountain is basically scrambling over loose rocks, so come prepared. The views are definitely worth it!
Also there are some very deep ruts on Washington Gulch road, you will need a high clearance vehicle for. I took my X5 and made it just fine, although there were some intense parts.

Easy hike with underrated views.

Great workout, Beautiful Trail

In spite of a constant descent you really dont appreciate the return trip until you do it. a great hike, poeple very courteous. A bit of high traffic with the SUV and off road vehicles. This was Labor day wknd.
