This hike is awesome for getting a good view of the valley!

Not that big of a fan of this route. Steady climb for an average view for this area. Flowers and birds were enjoyable. Little shade.

My first time hiking the ridge was this past winter with snow and ice everywhere. It was a bit difficult of course since I did not have any boot spikes but I did it anyways. I did not slip until heading back down of course hahaha.

The views were great going both ways, but if you like more of a wooded unique trail I recommend going the boyscout trail which you take a right just after the trail head kiosk they have there at the beginning. You will hike around the first hill into a little wooded canyon area and it meets back up with the main trail later on. The boyscout trail is much easier as well, it is not a steep hike like the main trail.

This is a very popular trail and it gets a bit over crowded for me sometimes, but you definitely need to hike it at least once while you're here.

Wonderful beautiful views tough going up and down!!

Not bad. Probably not enough water for the boys. But good for me. Flowers were out in bloom.

A great workout with gorgeous views! There a various ways to get to the top, there is a straight up, a switchback and a couple others.

Great weather and trail condition. Dry trail, light rain, abundance of wild flowers. Appreciated the alternate trail for return trip, it was damp but not wet or slick, and provided some landscape change with the forest canopy over the trail for some of the trails length.

Wildflowers were JUST beginning-otherwise it was beautiful.

A few muddy places, but overall dry. Steep in areas.

The trail was muddy but much better than last weekend. Very little ice/snow left on the trail, probably will be gone within the week. However, it was overcast, chilly, and windy. Last week was fine in short sleeves. Not so today.

First hike this spring, and Manastash didn't disappoint....saw elk, mule deer and beautiful view from the top!

Variable conditions starting with dry trail moving to muddy areas to mid point. Snow is fairly stable on the trail for the upper portion with some clearing. Today was overcast around 45° and it looks like it's going to be that way for the next few days. Happy trails

Good conditions today despite the snowfall. I have a 2-wheel drive car and parking was easy. Beautiful winter hike even though we didn't make it to the top. Wore spikes which were helpful on the steeper spots. You absolutely have to have them right now but it's more work without. We had to trek through untouched snow toward the top, which is part of why we turned around. Saw a couple on the way up and a few more people when we were almost back to the car. Glad we went!

Moderate trail. I would go back simply because the view is amazing once you reach to the top. Don't forget to sign in. :)

Not overly impressed. It's a decent trail, but do go here if you expect to be blown away scenic wise. Although it's maintained pretty well.
