Great trail! Loved the views!!

Fun easy hike. Great views and the wild flowers are spectacular.

This was a beautiful hike. Mountains, rivers, wildflowers, breathtaking views. It was pretty steep at times but my husband, 10 year old son and I made it with no problems.

loved this beautiful trail.

Really fun trail! One of my first real hikes I've done since I got out here and the view from the top is amazing. Definitely doing it again.

Easy, short trail. It's a popular hike, so it has a lot of traffic. Great if you're on a time crunch and want to get a quick hike in. Plus, you drive around Hyalite, which is always beautiful!

It was a little rough getting up and there were some confusing switchbacks. Given that, it's a beautiful hike and totally worth the trek up. Be prepared, it's super windy on top!

Absolutely gorgeous! One of my favorite places. It's a little more difficult at the beginning of the trail, but overall it was pretty mellow.

Love this hike my 2 year old and 5 year old boys hike with me a lot it's a long hike but a hike that they can do all on their own and the kids love to play in the little make shift fort at the top the views the whole way up are amazing too
