Hiked over 40 miles of this trail, over five days, from the trail head all the way up to Lake Lacrosse and back. Challenging trail, but the views at Hart and Lacrosse lakes are spectacular. Saw deer, Elk, and seven bear at the higher elevations. Great time!

Very nice trail by the river!

We have done this so many times because it is a favorite! The road leading to the trailhead is not well kept making travel pretty difficult. There is a lot of theft in the parking lot as well. Because of this, they do not have the day hike purchase available at the trailhead.

loved this hike, tho I will say as you get further along, you being to realize how out of shape you are....maybe that's just me :) keep in mind, the road leading in to park your car is very torn up with deep potholes. we went the last week of March and it was beautiful, fun hike!

it was a great hike

Hiked just past 5 mile camp for the weekend. The weekend prior - a wind storm knocked down a lot of trees. Many are laying over trail. You will have to climb over or under to maneuver past.

Hiked this trail with family and friends that had baby in pack and a toddler. I would say this is an easy hike. We stopped at the first camp for lunch by the river. The forest is picturesque! The mosquitoes...not so nice, bring your spray! If you're looking for a nice day hike with the fam, this is it!! Enjoy.
