tried to do a repeat of this fantastic hike but the creek at the trail head was running away to high to get across so we turned back. Getting there is a major challenge since the turnoff sign from the road to soldier creek is missing and the "road" across the private lands and then up the canyon REALLY sucks.

My 10 yr old daughter and I hiked this today. We enjoyed the Canyon and made it all the way to Soldier Lakes. Only got 1 tick on me, 2 bull snakes and 1 rattlesnake. Would definitely hike this trail again but maybe earlier in the spring to avoid the snakes. I dislike rattlers...

Beautiful view, trails are still a little muddy but most the snow is gone. There are a few spots where you have to cross the creek so be prepared. We camped and there are no trees at the lake, so bring your own shade. Lots of flowers blooming in July

Very steep climbing first mile, levels out as you climb. I went during early June so there was an abundance of wildflowers, butterflies, and wildlife.
