Definitely not an easy hike. Almost as challenging if not more than Delano. Missed the trail on several occasions. Due to time & kids complaining unfortunately did not make all the way to the top. Worth the hike. Beautiful views. Just expect to take lots of breaks & check the map at every trail mark u see. Will attempt at another time.

Long, uphill steep climb but very worth it at the top!

The trail is clearly marked. Not sure what the others are talking about. It does not say "Delano Peak" but the trail willl surely take you there. Tap "Directions" and that bugger will lead you straight to the right trailhead. Trail is easy to follow...once again not sure what the others are talking about...maybe it's tough if the extent of your outdoorsing is spent in front of a TV screen!

The National Forest had little to no visitors when I was there. Saw one tent, no people; a very desolate area indeed.

We were frustrated that the trail head was not clearly marked and we spent close to an hour searching. We finally just started on the Ridge Trail, thinking that we probably would end up doing a different hike than the Delano Peak hike. Eventually, there were red plastic markers on the trees, which we followed until they ended. At that point, we could see Delano Peak and bushwhacked to the top. Hike was just OK.

This hike was very beautiful! The waterfall was not as full as I've seen in other pictures but hiking it today it still had a lot of water. A very good hike!

We had fun looking around the old mine sites and cabins on and around the trail. We only saw 2 other people the whole time, which was really nice. It was a good hike overall, and we'll do it again. The Falls were beautiful!

A short but enjoyable hike. The red rock is gorgeous. You pretty much scramble all the way to the end, but never is it difficult. In fact, that's what makes it so much fun. The trees growing out of the side of the cliff face and the one tree growing out of a rock is pretty cool.

Great little hike for a 12k'+ Peak!! Even our little 3 legged dog made it up the entire way. Gorgeous views and so many wildflowers. The dirt road up to the trail was a little washboard but we'll maintained so cars should be fine. Plenty of camping along the forest road but it gets busy on the weekends. Enjoy!!

magestic.. favorite hike of the year for me.

be careful where you are walking, I almost got it from a porcupine right off the trail. I also saw one in the meadow near the water and flowers. saw elk, no goats..this hike is so worth it.

Very steep sections on the way up. Don't take teenagers that aren't into hiking. Scouts got tired after 2 miles and went back.

Great short trail for a quick hike. Just follow the creek up and it eventually ends in a box canyon with some nice view.

I stopped and hiked here to stretch my legs on a long drive. Perfect. Beautiful and secluded. The scramble is really fun. Ends at a dry canyon fall of red rock.

Nice little hike. Good scenery. Some big rocks to climb or find a way around, but it's possible to do either.

If you are staying in the Sunglow Campground, this hike is a must. Takes less than an hour and is fun for the whole family. A bit of scrambling over or around rocks is required, but nothing too difficult. Best part is at the end of the hike you get to see a tree growing out of a rock!

Beautiful hike. Very cold and windy on top but the view is definitely worth it!! Our 8, 13, and 15 year old kids all hiked it. Hard for the little one but she loved it and said she would do it again. You can also see mountain goats!

Because of the snow we had to start near the city water tank. It added an extra 2.5 miles each way and the snow was packed enough that we didn't need snowshoes. Once we got to the trailhead the powder was deep enough to require snowshoes. We broke trail is 6-10 inches of powder. The trail had beautiful views and climbed gradually until half way then more steeply to the view of the Falls. The Falls were completely iced over and beautiful.

Feels like you are hiking in Scotland but drier. The views are spectacular in every direction. Mountain goat herds looked like little puffs in the distance on the cliffs. Bush wacked from Poison creek.
