White River National Forest is the most visited national forest in the nation encompassing 2.3 million acres of opportunities. With 11 ski resorts, eight Wilderness areas, 10 mountain peaks over 14,000 feet and 2,500 miles of trails.

I hiked to the summit with my managers. It was fun watching them struggle haha

Absolutely worth taking the hike all the way to the end to catch a geological wonder. It's a truly beautiful sight in any season, including winter in December. Please take good care of it.

Awesome hike with amazing views

Little sloppy and muddy towards the lower parts of the trail, but by the lakes it was snow with some hard pack to trek on. Lots of skiers out there having fun!...hiked in late April.

4/22/17 Great hike! No real destination but it's pretty the entire time. We ran into a bear cub on the trail near the water treatment building / dam at the beginning of the hike - held back for a bit and then made a bunch of noise as we made our way past where the cub was. We also saw some bear tracks on the dirt road coming in.

This was much closer to the difficult side..but the view at the top is beautiful!!!! Very much worth it... pack water.. go slow..but if your up to the challenge you won't be disappointed

Wish it had a lake or something at the top. Also wish it wasn't so popular (although not as bad as hanging lake), but the creek follows you the whole way and it's absolutely beautiful

Nice hike. When I did it the trail was more like a stream until halfway up when it became solid snow. Snowshoes still weren't necessary since the snow was pretty well packed. Some nice views

Unbelievable trail! Great variety - broken up by series of bridges. Top of climb is difficult - not recommended for small children without assistance.

Oh the undulations! Nice for a mellow trail run. Totally dry minus one snow patch about 4 feet long. Great for spring running when everything is covered in snow and the landfill views/smells at the eastern terminus are to die for.
