Fantastic hike - really enjoy the Red Rock formations surrounded by trees. Fantastically beautiful. Easy to get to for a relaxed hike, not difficult.

Great trail. Traverse a meadow then head slowly up through stands of Aspens. The trail is steep and steady for the majority; easy consistent hiking. The summit opens up to broad fields and rock formations. I would like to have spent two days in order to camp and explore the top. Will return in summer.

this is a fun trail that goes downhill almost the whole time that anyone can do 90% of. be aware this is an out-and-back so make sure anything you go down you'll be able to go up. right near the end there are a few wedges and mogul/hole combos that'll get many vehicles to max flex. the main one is a set of 3 or 4 that i lifted a tire on each one. i just stayed in the gas and basically bumped 3 in a row traction/loss of/traction/loss of/etc. the trail ends at a lake in a valley but there are many cool campsites along the way. if you'd like to see a video of the run (starting from the lake and going back up for fun-sake) i have one up at:

Did this today with great ease!! Drove my '05 Ford focus to the 379 trailhead via old stage road which took approximately 40min from the bottom of it. My odometer read 11.5mi when we reached the parking area on the left side of the road. The road is in good enough condition to take any reliable vehicle down which I recommend vs taking the longer route through gold camp road. Everything was smooth and easy to find. Highly recommend.
