This was perfect for a casual fall hike with the dogs. I’m not sure why it was rated as hard because there wasn’t anything hard about it. Gently rolling hills with simple views. This trail would also be good for trail running and mountain biking. It is very hot in the summer without any shade around.

One of if not the best hikes I've done. Just incredibly beautiful. It was a little chilly and very windy in early October. Saw a tree and several branches toppled so be careful if it's windy. Amazing how fast a tree can fall when it gets going.

Short and sweet hike up to a small lake. All the flowers were dead, but the views of the snow covered mountains made up for it. Some small patches of ice and snow but nothing crazy. The burnt trees are pretty cool. Easy hike overall.

Hiked it today. Quite chilly, but the steep grade kept me from getting too cold on the way up. I had my puffy on for the way down. A few patches of snow and ice but nothing too bad. You can take the trail all the way to Upper Norton Lake right now. I got snowed on during the hike back downhill. I guess I missed the waterfall. Really enjoyed this hike!

Moderately strenuous trail with great views the whole way. The hike to the overlook is predominantly shady, and the rest of the hike is a nice balance of sun and shade. We hiked this Sept. 30th, and the trail was clear, although we saw snow patches higher up. We turned this into a loop by hiking up Bald Mountain Trail, then coming down Saddle Up Flow Trail and taking the Roundhouse Connector Trail back to the main trail. This trail also works for running; although parts are rocky, we found it relatively smooth and root-free.

Amazing hike! Beautiful the whole way up to the meadow and it starts with a nice creek setting. Two parts up were trying, the final stretch an absolute beast but so worth it. We want to go back and make a weekend of it and ascend hyndman peak.
