Beautiful hike! Took 3 adults, 1 carrying a 3 month old about 4 hours. Great hike this time of year (early Sept)

We hiked this trail one way with 4 adults 4 kids and a doggy. We staged a car at CHS. Great hike! The views were beautiful! We did it in October which was a little chilly and a bit slick with snow on the steeper parts. Will def do this again sometime! A soak at the end of the hike is perfect in fall!!!

Loved this one! Hiked to the hot springs then had to hitch hike back to the trailhead... we finally got a ride from some fellow travelers - lots of people drove right on by.

Completed solo. Absolutely splendid on the top. Not a hard trail in the summer.

Thru-Hiked this May 20th 2018. Still knee-high snow scattered along trail from mile 3 to mile 6, then mud for most of the remaining miles. Trail is difficult to find and follow due to snow. Views are amazing, but I won’t do this trail again until conditions improve.

Excellent hike! We went in mid March. The route wasn’t fully packed down and there are only markers every mile. Used the gps on this app whenever we second guessed the trail. Took us about 6-7 hours in snowshoes - the snow was commonly mid thigh deep.
