One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve done so far this year. Still snow at the very top so you can’t get over the pass unless you have snow shoes but you can get to the base of Naomi. I would highly recommend this hike to anyone

Absolutely love this hike , super fun river crossings

It was fun wish the gate was open to where we didn’t have to walk a mile .2 to get to the trail head but other than that it’s good hike kids dog a lot of water fun fun

AllTrails has this trail tagged for mountain bikes so I brought mine to the trailhead only to find out it's a wilderness area and therefore doesn't allow bikes. it was a great hike. I was just disappointed that I couldn't bike it.

the first 1.5 mile or so are very pretty, cutting thru the rock features in the canyon and following a stream. after that it starts to get snowy and by mile 2 it's basically completely snowed in. definitely want to come back when the snow has melted.

Much longer than expected. Would do again for the view at the top, but I would come better prepared for ice, snow, and length of hike.

Really fun trail but the description says it’s 7.7 miles. If you actually go to ridge where the trail splits, it’s closer to 5 miles one way making it around 10 miles round trip. Beautiful views at the end, just plan accordingly

Only ones on the trail today. About 2/3 of the way on the trial it was muddy and the last mile had 4 inch of snow. The last third of the hike really increases in incline. Several times we thought we were about to walk up to the lake, but it wasn’t there so keep on following the trail and you will eventually run into the lake. The sign says 5.1, but we tracked it on Strava and it took 5.6. The lake had a thin layer of ice on it. Trees weren’t quite changing color.

Great trail, lots of variation in geology, topography, vegetation. A third of the way up the trail you have to bushwhack up to the ridge, it’s not bad, but a pretty good amount of elevation gain over a short period of time. Once you hit the Ridgeline there some more technical hiking/climbing areas. Climbing areas can be avoided by going a little bit around the Ridgeline. The summit is beautiful, the trail down is outstanding and very easy. Great trail but not for Young kids, or those with health or mobility challenges.

the views were a m a z i n g, but the app takes you off any trails for like 2 or 3 miles. gets a little scary, but it's cool walking along the ridge to get to naomi. as long as you know you're going off trail, you'll be fine. stick with the map in the app

Lots of beautiful flowers! We hiked the trail in mid-August. Most of the trail is close to the creek. We crossed 6 bridges, a few of them were a little rickety but they held up - what an adventure! We turned around at the meadow of flowers and beaver pond with the snow-patched cliffs in the background. Absolutely breathtaking! It was a hard, steep hike but worth it!

We backpacked in and stayed the night. There is alot of bugs out, bring your deet! At our campsite there was alot of ants. Don't leave your shoes outside overnight unless you want it to become an ants nest. There is about 4 campsites at the lake. If you plan on filtering your own water, there is plenty of it along the way. This isn't an easy hike, make sure to come prepared, be safe out there! Hike on friends!

Most unreal views of Mt Naomi Wilderness. This trail is backcountry, so be prepared. The descent from Naomi was not a bad scramble, but GPS was off, use common knowledge to use a better angle slope. The descent into the “bowl” of White Pine is dangerous. You can either descend/down climb into a few of the dangerous couloirs or keep going over as far as possible to the mountain to pretty much slide down a loose 59% grade slope. This is an awesome trail, but not for Wind Cave warriors , you have to be very careful and know how to navigate a topographical map or you could get lost. GPS line works well for about 80% of the hike. BRING WATER. 10.2 Miles overall.

Still some snow just below High Creek Lake that covers the trail. A lot of snow around the north side of the lake but the trail up and out of the bowl is mostly clear. A couple of snow spots along the 1.5 mile section to the saddle just before the short trail to Naomi. The trail to Naomi's summit is pretty much covered with snow. We stayed higher, close to the ridge, and didn't have much trouble. Overall, the snow really slowed us down so take that into consideration. Still quite a bit of snow from the Tony Grove side too.
