Very short hike parts are steep but for the most part it's pretty easy. The view at the top is wonderful and because the hike doesnt take long you can do the others near by on the same day.

Very nice hike! Reward views all over the hike) no shade, so plan to hike at partly clouded skies. Will recommend hike boots or any toe protected shoes. Elevation gain at some points is pretty dramatic, and one hard place. Well maintained territory around. Dog friendly. Huge parking. There are a lot of small hikes on the way so keep track of your trail. With taking photos, stops, extra 0.6 miles of hike it took 2 hours to come back.

Went on a colder rainy dry so the tunnel felt dry and slightly warmer then outside, perfect. Spooky at first but then loved it. Very cool experience. Only saw a few people, no bikers, most of the time we had the tunnel to ourselves.

I love this trip, really got my heart pumping with switchbacks but worth it!

beautiful hike! took us just over two hours, and we ran most of the way down. beautiful views of leavenworth and the mountains and river! tons of wildflowers too! would recommend doing it in the morning to beat the heat.

Too much snow at the top, last half a mile snow is everywhere could not find trail. Ended up turning around. We’ll try again in a month or so when snow melts.

Cool hike, forgiving. Fun views and close to town. Lots of people and dogs.

We started out early in the morning and it was truly beautiful. There are many switchbacks with great places to catch your breath. Arriving at the top showcase views which are amazing of Leavenworth Valley, Cascade Mountains and Wenatchee River. Worth every breath.

I’m a heavy guy and decided to start dropping weight this year by walking and hiking. This new lifestyle change is eye opening for many reasons but for today it was the gorgeous views at the top (I took a right at the top to overlook Leavenworth). The trail was pretty crowded which was great for me since I had to stop all the time anyway so the extra stops were nice to catch my breath. An excellent experience. I’ll do it again.

Great spring with yellow daisies and some paint brush. Switchbacks all the way up. Tumwater Canyon, Leavenworth, and a 360 degree view at the top.

Pleasant hike. Great views.

Great trail with sweeping views. Will definitely go back

Nice views at the top. Lots of switchbacks in the beginning with minimum views, Getting to the top is worth it.

The scenery was beautiful and the weather was perfect. The hike gets very steep when you get closer the the top. My friends and myself didn’t make it to the top. I wouldn’t recommend for new hikers.

It was an amazing trail. There was snow about half way up, but even hiking in sneakers was doable. Completely worth the view.

Great hike and great views. There is still lots of snow on the trail. Some areas were packed down and easy to hike, other areas, I was falling through the snow up to my knees. Having snow shoes with me would have been nice, but the trail wasn't too long and the view at the end was worth it.

beautiful sunny day with some long range views in places easy hike on packed snow with 7 and 10 year old wearing hiking boots. will do again in warmer months for sure, very nice first day of Spring hike

Beautiful views but Trail is an old Track Road and not in the best of shape. I understand it is soon scheduled for major upgrades in 2019. The trailhead facility itself was updated in the past several years. It is very nice. It has safe parking and a large covered picnic area.

I haven't really been up here since I was a boy so I thought it would be fun. The trailhead is unbelievably improved. Great loop. Great scenery. Lots of memories.

I love Saddlerock. It's my favorite local go to spot! Great year round. A lot of different trails. Dog friendly, which is a must for me! Terrain can be steep and loose, so be prepared. Good hiking shoes highly recommended.....

Beautiful views! Not sure if we made it all of the way, but we were close. The trail was well packed down until the end part then it was a little deep in places. Just hiked in regular hiking boots and they worked well!

Started hiking this trail from the Nordic center. The first 1 mile or so feels like you’re going straight up. There is still a lot of snow which most of it is compressed. I was able to do it in regular hiking shoes. As my gf and I arrived to the lake, it was frozen over! We were able to walk over it, but it felt risky. Anyways, overall good short hike!

Wore spikes but didn’t necessarily need them most of the way. Beneficial going up in some places this time of year. View from the top was spectacular. Would definitely do it again!

My first time there, made it about halfway up I guess. a lot of snow and with the elevation, that was a lot for me. hope to do it again soon and be able to make it to the top.

It doesn't get any better than this! Microspikes and good music. I forgot to hit record, but it was a grand time! Cool people to say hi to at the top too.

Our first snowshoe trip with our family. Even though it was overcast, it was beautiful. We arrived early and were the first on the trail.
