The trail begins from two possible locations on Douglas, but connects up quite quickly on the Treadwell Dike Trail. You then continue up on a trail heading uphill towards the mountains until it becomes boardwalks. Overall the trail is quite easy and would be fun for many people.

Beautiful trail with plenty of great views for photos. Trail is mostly all 2x4 boards that are put together to create steps. Make sure you are ready for tons of stairs. Going done is rough due to the boards but the cabin and view from the top is worth it. Went during dry spell and 74 degrees outside but could tell that the trail would be slippery if it wasn’t for the boards. Reached cabin in 1hr 15mins which was perfect.

I would not recommend the trail unless you plan to use the cabin. It's not terribly interesting compared to many others in the area.

Up the whole way, I went with still a foot or two of snow on the ground. Kind of more tiring then it had to be, to cabin is awesome and I really enjoyed my experience. Didn't see any wildlife.
