Beautiful trail with plenty of viewing of the river and Angel rocks. Highly recommend a trip to the hot springs afterward to soak any sore muscles. Loved it!

very nice to be able to hike up on the ruins of old volcanic activity; fairly easy trial, incline gets a little rough but there's an established trail making it nice. more than worth it for the short distance hike and the great views. there is even a natural spring that has a designated drinking area off of the main trail

Really nice trail. I didn't loop around I went towards Chena hot springs. This trail has wonderful views and is fairly easy due to being an established trail however the incline for a mile and a half make it a moderately difficult trail. I hike about a 25 min mile. No bear or moose scat good trail.

Wonderful hike up to rock formations! Don't forget to spray up because the MOSQUITOES ARE FEROCIOUS! Great view!

Popular/busy location. Great views. Flat start with a decent incline to the top. Gradual decline at the start then it starts to pick up towards the middle of the descent. Ends with the same flat part that you started on. $5 parking fee

The hike is steep but well worth it for the views at the top. If you continue and do the full loop the difficulty is on the harder side of "moderate". The footing can be unstable and there are points where it's easy to miss a trail turn. When I went yesterday there were several people, including a large group, who didn't follow the leash rule and let their dogs run freely and unattended amongst the other hikers. Every time I've gone on this hike there are lots of people on the first half, but on the back half the crowds thin out and you get some alone time with nature.

Gorgeous hike! Nice and quick if you just keep
trekking, but longer if,you like to explore the rock outcroppings. Topped it off with a trip to the springs and a nice dinner.
