moderate drive. only two spots that are issues for driving. Awesome view at the top!

Awesome hike. I recommend bringing your micro spikes for the end part, if you have them. If not then hiking poles.

definitely an easy. shouldn't be moderate, passed a Passat on it. has nice views in some spots but no challenge

We got to the parking area just after 8 and we were some of the first ones there somehow. It was chilly and windy. Lots of snow and ice up high but a gorgeous lake at the end. Loved how it followed a creek.

Beautiful trail with a lot to see on the way. There was some bad weather rolling in, so I didn't get to explore as much as I would like to up at the lakes, so I'll definitely be going back.

Parking is terrible, and 4th of July Road is rough if you haven't been on it before. You definitely want a high clearance car to get to the TH. Would also be a great place to backpack.

We really enjoyed this hike. Several creek crossings with well-placed boulders, great scenery, and a nice warm up and cool down with the easy portion of the trail from the trailhead. The loop portion is totally exposed, but is a great workout. I suggest going counterclockwise for a more gradual increase in elevation, but clockwise will get your heart pumping. I'd start early, if possible, especially on a warm day if doing the loop. And bring plenty of water for you and your dog.

Beautiful hike. Set out at 6:30 AM and didn’t see anyone the whole way up and back. Hiked in 4 miles on the trail to the Wilderness boundary. Hiked out on the 4 WD Road. The road was a bit sketch as there were numerous icy sections, should have stayed on the trail both ways. Take your spikes if you take the road.

Went up on Saturday 10/14 and it was a beautiful sunny day up until you get to the mountain. It started to snow as soon as we started on the trail but it really made for a lovely hike. Only saw 5 other people in the trail, 3 hikers and 2 fishing. It’s beautiful in the snow but it falls quick so if you are not careful you can lose the trail pretty quickly. I still recommend doing the hike even in the snow but I wouldn’t go alone unless you are an experienced hiker just for the snow reasons. It was all in all a great day.

Did this trail right after the snow storm and was the first one up. The trail didn’t exist so I got a bit lost and post holed my way up to the top. Saw a moose though.
