It was a nice climb and beautiful views along the way! I'll be sure to hit this trail again.

Cool little hike that can be completed in a couple hours! Lots of history.

For more information and to get a better feel for the hike, I filmed it and threw it on YouTube. https://youtu.be/3twcjuqeDik.

Well-maintained, excellent hike with brilliant fall foliage. Well worth it.

Arid peak lookout is for rent and is a very nice place to spend the night. it's well stocked with cooking and tools for cutting fire wood. You park at a dead end on what appears to be a safe place for your vehicle over night. under 3 miles to lookout and only 600 or so feet of elevation gain.

so I misunderstood the route, I started at the mouth of kyle creek at the river, its a long climb but a nice hike. I didn't make it to the lookout, I turned around after 3 miles when I realized I still had almost 2 miles more. I didn't plan on a 9.5 mile hike(time and supplies) I will go back more prepared.

Great easy hike

A decent afternoon hike. Lots of good history about the Big Burn (I recommend the book of the same name). The info boards are up to date and interesting. Trail is well-maintained but not very challenging. You can't access the mine entrance which became emergency shelter in 1910, but you can see it from the trail above (about 25-50 feet away).

Well just finished this hike and it's pretty all the way up! The cave is closed so you can't go in. The last part of the hike has a really steep incline. Their is may seating areas along the way but be carful when sitting down as we spotted dropping of possibly Rats.

Pretty easy trail through some impressive forest. One caveat, though. The Pulaski Tunnel itself is actually across the ravine from the trail end. Going up, I was under the impression that you could walk right up to the tunnel/site itself and look in. Unless the trail has been modified since 2013, this is the status. That being said, if you are in the area and you want a nice woodland trail to explore, this would be a good option.

Suggest you take the St. Maries-Avery route. Trail head is 16 miles from Avery on very good gravel roads that pass though 3 old train tunnels. Hike in took 1 hour. We had the Lookout during the smokey season so the views were limited but still spectacular. Hike to spring water was 1 hour round trip with Huckleberries to to eat during breaks. Going back up with heavy water in the packs, the steep trail wasn't that bad but plan to do it once!.
