Awsome mountain biking trail!!!!!!

Beautiful views and easy for everyone!

Great hike anytime of the year!

flat & easy. A small stream in the first mile. Not too many good overlooks. The Alpine Loop that cuts through the to the right follows a very deep gorge.

Great trail, however due to winter storms, the trail was closed to the peak. We went as far as we could and then ran into some snow pack and downed trees. This is a great climb with no bouldering or rock scrambles. It is a beautiful hike that will get your heart and blood pumping. CARRY BEAR SPRAY and be aware and alert to wildlife. We ran into a very large (mama) brown bear and her two cubs that wanted to come up the same trail we were trying to descend. We ended up heading back UP the trail and scrambling down through some trees and brush to access a logging road that (thankfully) ran parallel to the Danny On Trail. Great for a quick(ish) hike - didn't take very long for us to complete. Maybe a couple hours.

It hailed the whole time, but always a great time in the back country!

Bug spray and cover up for the flies! We did this hike in late July with the beargrass on full display.

Cool Fall day, tons of bear scat, no bears!

Well kept and marked trails. Great views.

Not what I expected. I was looking for a 10 mile hike and thought this was it. When this says it is 5.3 miles I thought the trail would end. There is a small waterfall at about 2.5 miles but the trail continues on after that. If you want to go to the lookout at the top of the mountain it is about 7.3 miles one way that are pretty steep. Since I didn’t know what to expect on this trail I kept going past the waterfall. If you want to see a better waterfall than the one that is directly on the trail, cross the small river and go up the riverbank on the right. There is about a 20 foot waterfall about 2/8 of a mile up the river. The trail does go up at first and then down and then up. The last 4 miles are really steep so be prepared. The view from the top is breathtaking.
