Great trail! Our shoes didn’t get wet once this time of year. The creek bed had lots of small boulders but was easy enough to navigate with the cairns & there was more than one “right” way ;) View was beautiful even in the clouds!

Awesome and easy hike. The first mile is shaded and a lovely walk through the woods. Then you get to the “creek”. Later in the season the “creek” is more like a small river, so wear shoes you are willing to get wet! Idk if it will be there next year but someone put rock piles along the “creek” to follow, thank you! I got confused by the app map, the rocks helped me realize that you just cross cross along the river into the valley.

incredible trail. it starts off a little buggy through bear lands then opens up to a creek bed. the creek bed can be very annoying. brig sticks. keep going past the end for breath taking views.

Super awesome and beautiful trail. Carins were easier to see than I thought they would be, it's pretty well marked. There were a lot of bigger rocks at stream crossing, it's a "choose your own adventure" type of trail. Amazing views, I would totally do this trail again next time I am in the area. The trail was easier than I thought it would be. Moderate only because of all the rocks and stream crossings, I could see those being really sketchy after a good rain. Luckily we were there in the middle of the heatwave.

This hike was steep but at a good moderate pace. Beginning is nothing but just forest sceneries and then you'll hit up a creek. Then it gets a bit difficult because you would have to cross all the rocks and the creeks as you get further out. Be careful! I actually slipped twice into the creek and got all wet. It was a nice walk and the scenery isn't too bad. It was just fun overall but it's pretty difficult.

First to Review

I liked this trail really great views and leads you up a to a pass. You do have to walk with the creek up so there is not a official trail there but it is fun hike up.
