A great hike with lots of variety and terrific views.

Great hike! Still lots of snow on the trail, knee deep in places, but was able to pack in and camp overnight at the lake.

Nice hiking/snowshoeing/skiing trail during the winter but it does spend a lot of time right next to the highway, which really detracts from the beauty of the area. Also, lots of people bring dogs who run alongside them when they are skiing and allow them to poop on the trail with no cleanup. Watch your step.

May 26, 2018. Too snowy to actually hike. I parked about a mile from the trail head because the snow was too deep to continue on a car. Got to the trail head and did about half a mile of the trail before turning back. Absolutely beautiful but snow up to my knees in many places (I'm 6'2"). You could probably do the hike if you had snow shoes.

This trail was stunning. We went on 5/5/18, a nice warm overcast off-season day. Still lots of snow on the trail at points which caused quite a bit of post holing. We only went three miles up, but still worth it. These isn’t a very tough hike and the views of the lake were great. Highly recommend!

This trail definitely isn’t a “hard” trail. It’s a little lengthy (moreso if you get lost like I did) but the terrain is easily hiked. A peaceful trail with little shade which was perfect since it was a little chilly and overcast. It might be too hot during the summer.

Great Trail

Didn't know what to expect when we pulled up. This was our 1st time here and we absolutely loved it!!! Great trails for all levels

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.

Fabulous hike in the snow!!! Saw tons of animal tracks!! Beautiful views. Loved 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.

Best Bike Ride Ever! Went on High Adventure!

My track below is the Bald Mountain Trail. It is a tough up but worth the effort. Free ride down the mountain. Great lunch at Roundhouse Resturant.

No idea where this trail actually was. We ended up on the rip and tear bike trail. Would be great for biking. Not the best for hiking

This hike should be rated as easy- not much incline. Was absolutely beautiful especially the part along the river. The trailhead is at the end of a residential neighbourhood

Very nice trail. Close to town

Really nice hike today without 8 year old. Elevation was great. Mix of woods, open spaces, and river trails. Great!

This is normally an amazing trail but as of July 1, 2017 there is significant erosion that is difficult, but possible to navigate around. There is a steady climb for about the first half of the ride which culminates with a steep ascent to the top. I had to hoof it up this last hill. Then once you pass the cattle guard, it's a beautiful single track downhill. A few short climbs and more fun downhill will get you back to the trailhead. Note: you have to ride from the trailhead about 2 miles up the highway to Williams creek road to start. The loop ends up back at the trailhead where you park.

This was difficult. We ride the gondola up, not really planning a hike. We got to the top to take a look at the beautiful view and decided to walk down. Quite steep at times. Lots of rocks. Good hike tho. Very pretty.

Fairly easy hike, great variety of scenery, wildflowers in the spring, some great views from two rocky points, alongside Wood river. Dogs off leash.

Good hike, pretty easy, not too steep. Very pretty scenery, transitioning from Aspen, to dense pine and then to the top of the hill which is covered in wildflowers (at least in mid June). Great views of the area from up top. Coming down was strange, we ran into a spot where the trail was absolutely riddled with giant fallen trees, not sure if they are thinning forest here but most of them looked to be uprooted and toppled. Could have traversed the maze of horizontal trees but instead found alternative route that connected back to the loop. Overall fun hike!
