Lovely, relaxing walk right outside my backdoor pretty much! Great for biking as well. Worth experiencing during a full moon!

Cute little place!! Awesome mini waterfall to the right after you cross the river where you can slide off a naturally made rock slide and jump off a little cluster of rocks!

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.

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.

This is one of many trails in this area but not all of them are on alltrails.com. Some of the lakes don't even have names on maps. Remote and desolate. Amazing.

Lovely day for this lovely little hike. We had it to ourselves, feeling as if you are at the top of the world. Saw a marmot scramble up the nearby slope at great speed, nothing to do with us.

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.

I hiked this Trail on August 4th. It's a scenic trail with lots of great views. I started on the Gothic side of the trail which apparently is harder as it's mostly uphill but the views were great. I didn't see too many people along the way which was nice. The wildflowers were absolutely stunning!

The trail is big kid friendly (5+). I hiked it with my two year old and had to carry him across the river and a few other times because of mud and tree roots. Wasn't a huge hassle to carry him because he liked to take breaks from walking. Lots of photo opportunities and a nice waterfall to cool off in.

Nice, scenic, lots of switchbacks but great for families. My 4 year old did the whole thing. The views at the top were incredible and we saw 6 Ptarmigan and a Pika.

Great trail for kids. We did this one with a little on in a pack and two preschoolers. The falls are beautiful with a little bench/overlook area. We will do this one again.

This hike is tough! The views are awesome but 2+ miles of rock field is exhausting. Also the trail is non-existent even outside of the rock fields. I would recommend just going around lost lake and then up a bit part way through the fields - the whole way is not quite worth it, in my opinion!

Greate family trail

Nice, kid-friendly hike. Views of the falls are good, and there are a few informative signs along the way. Quite a few 4wd vehicles and a couple mountain bikers to be aware of in the beginning of the trail.

Love this hike. You can keep it short & super easy just going to the falls ... or a little further to the first river crossing. You can keep going and cross more rivers giving you more adventure. It's perfect for families who may want to start easy, but add on if the kids are doing well. Very beautiful.

Fun hike. Lots of rock climbing
