I only went halfway but loved it.

Beautiful trail, RD to trail head was in great shape. The trail is icey, I suggest micro spikes. If your GPS tries to take you to Jackson LN it's incorrect.

Lovely and do-able even this late in November.

Great hike

Great trail. Tons of great views and easy scrambling. When we went the creek was out of its banks so we had to take a few detours. About 6 miles in the canyon narrows and is more wooded. Tons of great rapids and scenery.

Roads solid ice, narrow, with cliffs had to bale on it today. Will return in the spring.

We did this hike at the end of October. It was very pleasant to hike along the creek. The sun was hidden behind the mountains in the afternoon which made it chilly, good layering was helpful!

This USFS trail does not get a lot of use but is not hard to follow, particularly in early spring or late fall when there is less undergrowth. Great place for isolation, as I've been on it twice and still haven't run into another hiker. Beautiful scenery at some of the clearings as well as nearly panoramic views at the saddle. Good workout too (in my opinion), as the elevation gain is pretty consistent the entire way. The last 1,500 feet was above the snow line when I went, so the last segment was hard (should have brought yaktrax or similar). If you go in summer or when there is less snow, there is a trail downhill and east from the saddle that continues to Burnt Fork Lake, which is apparently beautiful and well-worth it.

October 2017. Lots of down trees, due to the summers fire. Very interesting to hike through the burned areas - some places it burned very hot and there’s nothing left. Some fire retardant still around, which make some areas look like hiking through. a technicolor dreamscape. It’s a different experience than usual, but very interesting. The fallen trees make it more challenging and slower than usual.
