Started at panjab trailhead with 2593 in elevation gain first 4.5 miles then opened up to beautiful meadow. Tons of butterflies at low level and a gorgeous hike. Took 7 hours constantly moving.

Beautiful trail!

Very fun, very pretty trail. It was late in the day and so I only hiked about a mile and a half in, to the first fork. Very easy first section, hiked it with my kids and toddler.

Just about jiggled the fillings out of my teeth! Went about 3-4 miles in and my wrists told me to turn around lol. Most amazing place I ever saw! Coming back on foot next time. A groundskeeper told me there has been a cougar (not a hot milf looking for fun) seen around the area recently so be careful. Might want a hand gun just in case for safety reasons. It’s against the rules I think but it’s better than getting your leg chewed off.

Only went 3.3 miles down I, there were some great views to be had...

The trail is rather steep and has lots of loose gravel. It tends to be quite exposed, making it often a pretty hot, dry hike. Wildflowers and views were nice, however.

The trailhead is really easy to find right past Harris Park. The first part of the trail is easy and follows along the river.

Nice area - the road to trailhead is still under snow. Unable to pass.

I think the map on this site may be inaccurate towards the top, but it's hard to tell. Near the top, there was a split in the trail and the fork to the right was blocked with fallen logs. I proceeded to the left and it became a trench filled with patches of snow. It came out into the upland meadow, but there was no trail connector, so I noted that there was a set of leg bones still attached to each other where I emerged. I did an over night stay, and had difficulty finding the Panjab trail after that. Finally had to move along the tree line until I found the leg bones. Then I knew where I was. The split I am describing was at the 3.7 mile mark on this map, but I'm only guessing right now.

Easy day hike.

Fun little day hike! Some down trees to scale over but nothing too bad. The ticks were very bad so be mindful!

Awesome hike, little muddy, and dirt bike noise can ruin the mood but when they aren't around it's breathtaking.

Great fun for a half day 5 mike round trip. Dog loved it ..lot of hikers on a nice day. Beautiful hike if your looking for mountains close to the desert. I’ll be back!!

Easy hike around this beautiful lake. But to get here, the road is dusty and very rough from Tollgate to the lake. It gets worse every year.

Few downed trees across the trail in the first mile but nothing to serious. There is still a very light dusting of snow which made for some great views.

Gorgeous trail! Definitely wear your hiking boots. At times muddy.

Awesome trail. Took 1.5 days to do it. Many deer. No bears. Did the loop in mid september and it got quite chilly at night. Took me probably a total of 7 hours to do the whole loop going at a pretty consant rate with few breaks. The trail is muddy at points and there are a few trees fallen across. but nothing you can circumvent. Water is plenty up there, just bring a filter!

Great hike! A little smokey but views were still amazing

Fun hike; steep and rocky at times. Beautiful views.

Great easier trail following the river through forests. I went about a month ago and it was a little muddy in low spots but no problem. Would be great on a mountain bike!

This is a beautiful place to hike, fish, swim, kayak, etc... 53 Camp sites with various uses. Potable water is near almost every site. Be warned...the 9 miles of gravel road to get to the lake/campground is washboard hell. If you are towing a trailer of any type, be prepared to take your time. I have spent many years hiking and hunting the woods of the PNW...for a gravel road, this is the second worst. By far the longest and worst washboard I have ever traveled. The worse road included potholes and washboard. Otherwise, the FSRD 64 would have the title for the worse!

Some over-grown spots but fortunately did pick up any ticks. This tired our dogs out. Walking sticks should be in order as it can be loose under foot on way down.

narrow, steep, but can be done with kids (mine were 4, 11, and 13) but fun. We had lunch on the side of a mountain. How cool is that.

This trail does not currently seem maintained, very overgrown. Nice gentle hike with lots of butterflies and wild flowers. There aren't many views or interesting scenery tough.

Thinly absolute favorite spot to go. Its located in Harris Park. Furthest I've gone so far is 9 miles out and back.

Hiked to the Coyote Creek campsite and back from the lower trail head. The trail is overgrown but still easy to follow. There were two spots with downed trees over the trail and a few spots with thick mud. The trail crosses a few small creeks that are easy to get across. Lots of butterflies and wildflowers along the way.
