beautiful day for a beautiful hike Trail was not too difficult but you can stay on it and go quite a ways more than just 7 miles total I did 11 round trip

Great trail a little icy at the top but has wonderful views and I made a couple friends too!

The signage leaves a lot to be desired. Otherwise a nice hike

Great hike! Took our dog and he did great as well. We did stray from the trail twice but like another person said - always go left (we went right). One of the points was when you cross the stream. There was a big flat rock and 2 logs to walk across.
We parked at the visitor center and walked across the street to the dirt road. Went up that and found the trail pretty easily.
