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.

Beautiful views! A great hike! A highlight of our trip.

The trail is good, some improvements (thanks to volunteer trail workers) but seriously steep. I first did this mounting in March 1997 and we got lost on the way down that day. today was nice but at 55 coming and an orthopedic text book, coming down is harder that going up. weather was great. Up in 3;04 and finished at 5:31 (15 min at top with 40 people ). I need to find partners of equal capability

on a different note, I get concerned with very young children on these mountains, getting them o safety would be difficult.

Basic trail. As far as off road it is a well maintained dirt road. Lots of traffic in the fall (foot, bikes and cars). Very scenic in the fall and a beautiful drive.

Great trail, meanders along no name. A lot of vegetation and rewarding views throughout.

Beautiful wildflowers along the way up to 2 scenic lakes. Steep in parts but a wonderful hike!

I'm a moderately experienced hiker. I've done several longer Day hikes and was ready to attempt my first 14er. The trail was challenging and strenuous. Once you pass the tree line you are climbing rocks. The trail is well marked and the stone steps are helpful but it was difficult. I made it to 13K feet and knew that was the end for me. While I was there it started to hail. My husband continued in to summit and described the Rick scramble as another intense physical challenge (he's in excellent shape). I'm grateful for this experience and the views were spectacular but it was the most difficult physical challenge I've ever taken on. It was a day I won't forget.

very good trail for MTN biking, beautiful hike as well, just be cognizant of turns at the beginning miles or u will end up hiking up a service Rd...but beautiful nonetheless

Good leisurely hike up a wide trail, more like an old road. Some pretty views and a small waterfall. The old mine at the top is pretty cool to see. Great views from up there.

Really beautiful hike. We hiked in four miles to enjoy both lakes, then back down. Highly recommend. Very dog friendly hike as well.
