hiked this trail a bunch. like it a lot. not too hard. tried to go up during a good snow event but they closed it.

Can you still get all the way to the summit in Jan (now)? Wondering if there is too much snow in the way?

Great leg workout! Will do again!

This is a fun spot to walk to for lunch. Again take some good beer for the summit. Excellent view of the area! Good to warm up and get confidence for other hikes.

What a view once you get to the top! clear trail.

Great views and difficult. This trail is still not marked properly. I saw 3 groups all getting to the neckline in 3 different ways..

Honestly, I went late AF! Got there at like 5-5:15
BUTTTTTT, i feel it was even MORE AMAZING!!!
If there’s anything I could suggest is catch yourself here at sunset, that way you can catch the stars and the silhouettes of the mountainsand trees!

Bring a flashlight!!! But yeah it’s super fucking DOOOOPE! DOOOO IT BROSEPHERS!✊

Good trail

Snow and ice patches starting to show when getting within an hour of the summit bring plenty of water and warm gear. This took us around 5.5 hours with resting at the many vistas along the way
The views approaching sunset are special

Amazingly beautiful hike. two trails to choose from. red for easy, black dash trail for a slightly more technical route. lots of ticks this time of year, so be aware of your surroundings. great for dogs, and kids.

Beautiful, scenic trail. Took me about 2 hours to hike there and back including resting and picture taking.

Enjoyed this hike with my fiancé. We had a bit of a time getting up and I slipped and fell. Have proper footwear cuz the rocks are loose and there is no railing. Wouldn’t suggest this for children past halfway point.

Good trail for training ..

Great workout & really cool to do via moonlight if you get the opportunity! ✌

The trail is pretty hard if you don’t have the correct footwear, but overall the view was worth it and so was the absolute silence. Go early in the morning and there’s just no sound. Wildlife is also beautiful, I saw three does on the way up.

Besides other people on the trail blasting music & the elevation giving me a bit of a headache— this hike was perfect! Easy to follow, family friendly (if you aren’t scared of heights), & a great view at the top.

One of the most amazing views I’ve ever encountered, especially as the fall colors are at their peak. Well worth the effort - not for the faint of heart!

Short hike but the steady incline gets your lungs pumping for sure! Take your time, there’s a lot of benches a long the way if you need to stop.

Great workout. A lot of elevation gain in a fairly short distance (about 2 miles.) I usually get to the junction with the North Loop in 55 mins and can run back down in 20. Perfect for days where you don’t have a lot of time, but want a great workout surrounded by the beauty of the wilderness.

Amazing views! Take your time hiking, I didn’t. Ended up getting mountain sickness when I got home because of the elevation. But I will definitely go back to the trail again, now that I know better than to rush on my way to the top!

Steady uphill climb. 67 degrees with a nice breeze around 10am. Worth it when you get to the top and see the view. All the Aspens are a beautiful yellow now.

This steady incline to the peak has very well maintained trails trickled with numerous lookouts with natural wood benches, making this hike doable for most fitness levels. In the fall, a majority of the trail is sandwiched between rows of vibrant yellow trees that when the sun shines threw (and it’s almost always sunny) looks like gold coins flickering in the wind. It’s not necessarily a long hike up (made it to the top in 45 minutes, 83 minutes total - steady pace) but the elevation climb will get your heart pumping and your lungs a workin. But that’s ok. Sit at one of those benches, and catch your breath. You won’t regret it.


P.S. Early bird gets the worm. 8-9 am if you like more undisturbed hikes.

Well marked trail with excellent views. The second set of switchbacks are not for the novice hiker. The angle of ascent is steep and the trail is loose. Proper footwear is an absolute must. Plan to get here very early to get a good start.

Great views at the top as well as along the way. Well worth it. Take your time and enjoy the hike. Stay to the right at the unmarked fork.
Look for the Endangered Palmer Chipmunks at the top. They only exist in the Spring Mountains. Resist feeding them. They will become dependent on humans for food and will be doomed in winter.

Worth it, take your your time though

a bit challenging due to the elevation but the view was worth the effort.

This is great trail with beautiful views. The leaves were just starting to change and there was so much to see and take pictures of along the way. Next time I plan to keep going all the up to Griffith peak!

Great hike, rewarding views! If you like switchbacks, this trail is for you!

Great hike for experienced hikers. Loose rock so wear good hiking shoes. Trekking poles are a must to save the knees. Great view of the surrounding area.
