This trail is now my favorite. It’s beautiful from the very beginning to the very end.

BackpackingGreat!

Very easy, we made it to the end of the road in my little Chevy Cobalt, no problem. It's only about a mile per lake from that point. the lakes are also smaller than expected...

Beautiful, family-friendly and zen out & back trail starting from the Buffalo River dam and ending at an outlook point just across from the waterfalls.

HikingGreat!

Lovely trail along the stream with fall colors abundant. Only came across 3 other people the entire hike! There is quite a bit of horse droppings but otherwise the trail is in pristine condition.

An overnight trip to Upper Palisades Lake. There’s an incoming storm so it’s kinda windy but the views were incredible and the leaves are breathtaking.

HikingBlowdownOff trail

I really enjoyed this hike and completely it gave a great sense of accomplishment; however, I want to write up a warning to others about what they should expect. I'm in my mid-30s and a retired professional athlete, so I am in pretty good shape. I'm also a fairly experienced day hiker having done many day-hikes in the 13-18 mile range around the world. This may have been the most difficult that I have done - make sure you are properly prepared. Even with a physical map and lots of hiking experience, we probably would not have made it to the top without my wife's garmin which had the hike pre-loaded in. We took Taylor Mountain Trial up, Coal Creek over, and Moose Creek trail down. If you do plan on doing the loop, I highly recommend doing it that way. All of the navigation issues occur on the Taylor Mountain trail whereas Coal Creek and Moose Creek are very well defined and easy to navigate. During Taylor on the way up, there are many many downed trees which completely cover the trail. Expect to have to climb up these downed trees and look for where the path continues.. this is not always easy. One time in particular during a series of switchbacks, there are several downed trees and when you climb on them, you will not see the path continue. Our garmin, indicated that the trail came back up (I think east) of where we were, so we went off path and we were able to find it. The downed tree itself had covered the switchback where the trail actually turns back up. As others have indicated, as you are getting closer to the top, there will first be a large cairn and then no path through a large and upward sloping field. Initially, you cannot see the top of the field because of the upward slope. Work your way through it in the Northeast direction. Eventually, there will be a smaller scree (grouping of natural rocks) in front of you. Head in that direction, but if you make it all the way to the scree, you went a bit too far. As you are working toward that, eventually there is a bit of a dip where water probably runs through during the rain. This is actually the path. You will find some remnants of old pieces of wood that someone had put in there to act as steps. Follow this east (up) toward the trees and hopefully you will find where the path starts back up. From here it becomes fairly obvious where you need to go even if the path sort of comes and goes. Work your way to the top. Here you will find fantastic panorama views and the much more clearly delineated Coal Creek trail. Separately, on the way up Taylor Mt trail, we encountered the largest male moose I have ever seen. We ran into each other in a forested area about 2 miles into the hike and we were about 40 feet from each other. He decided to RUN at us which was a bit scary before veering off the path. Overall this hike was about 16.5 miles (including the bit to the top of Taylor) and an excellent experience! The hike really tested our navigation skills and stamina (about 4k feet of vertical through out). The uphill is very slow going because of all the downed trees and navigation issues, so leave yourself extra time. The entire thing took us about 10 hours with only two short (10-15 min) breaks.

To Humans: virtually no trail maintenance, loose gravel - trekking poles are mandatory... but breathtaking views of Alpine and the lake! To K9 Hikers: unless you are a perfectly well behaved Billy Goat that doesn't ever pull even the slightest - do not let your humans bring you along on this deathtrap. Steep slopes with extremely loose gravel mean you will be catching them when they fall... and potentially dragging them down the slope face of the mountain to be stopped by a tree a hundred feet below. This trek is certainly one that a four legs would be handy on... so do your humans a huge favor and pick a hike that won't end in you and your favorite people in a hospital... the view is not worth the risk... on top of that the trail is super hard to find on the right side of the peak and you'll be bushwhacking through hundreds of feet of tick infested brush. Lastly... 15 gun shots nearby in October made for my yellow lab to be more than a bit on edge. conclusion: fantastic trail for humans with trekking poles: it's hard, not moderate loose gravel on 45° slopes is not a moderate trail. we've backpacked and section hiked... the rating is wrong... but with a dog on leash it's downright dangerous... not just brutal.

Gorgeous trail! A lot of incline/decline made it a great workout. The lake was beautiful and my dog enjoyed cooling off. We were confused on where the lake was, but if you go a few minutes passed the clearing you’ll find it!

If you are a true beginner like I am, this trail was a challenge but definitely do-able! I wanted to give up and turn around but I'm glad I didn't. The hike was absolutely beautiful. The leaves are a vibrant green, orange, and red. I felt like I was in a movie. The trail was easy to see but beware of the horse poop. Bring lots of water and go earlier than 3pm so you can get back to your car before dark. Lesson learned. I highly recommend this trail!

Amazing hike! Trail is well marked and great views along the way. The lower lake has a great campground and is very cool. Saw a moose on our way to the upper lake. The trail gets a little steep at the last mile but is well worth it as the upper lake is amazing. So gorgeous and quiet. We were there in the early evening and no one else was around. Some campers were heading up on our way down. Overall, the whole hike was great and the lake is worth the trek. Highly recommend
