This trail is a favorite for my family, water, pretty meadows, wildlife, close to town. We have done this one too many times to count and continue to go back!

If you’re looking to get a good walking exercise, this is a good length trail. However I didn’t find it moderate, mostly easy. It’s June, and there is absolutely no water in the creek. Was kinda hoping to see some. There’s these little puddle, water creeks here & there but mainly what the cows drink from. Some open meadows, but not much else to look at.

We did this trail once as a family, we have 2 kids, 9 & 11 and really enjoyed it. My husband and I did it a second time after some rain. It will be even better once the creek starts running.

It’s an ok hike. Very minimal incline in a couple areas but mostly flat. I would rate as easy. Not much to see. There was a little bit of water but not much due to lack of rain in the area.

Easy hike. A lot of shade in the afternoon. We went counterclockwise so the first half seemed prettier with the creek crossing (dry this time).Took my 13 yo son that’s isn’t really into hiking and he did well.

Took a group of kids age 5-14. Hike was more of a walk, not strenuous, and the kids had a great time playing on the frozen creek.

We took the trail backwards...in the order that we did it, the scenery looked the same through 3/4 of the trail. All the scenic parts were towards the end, so it was a nice way to see it. Good trail to take with kids that are a little older (10+).

Nice little hike! We went on a Friday morning and there was not much foot traffic. Our dogs loved the trail!

Nice. First half, going clockwise (left), is quite flat and not too exciting. A lot of trees marked for thinning with big orange stripes. Popular with horseback riders. The second half is prettier, rockier and steeper with a stream, green grass and a couple of stream crossings (rocks to step on). All in all a fairly easy hike with just a small section, that might be a challenge for some, where the trail gets steeper and rocky.

Decent. Well marked trail. Breezy and shady most of time- it was 90 degrees out- but felt much cooler. Took us around an hour and a half- but with frequent stops. Though should be renamed "horse shit trail" as lots of horse poop on trail....

Fair amount of shade from the trees and the creek is pretty. But, there is a mile or so that is literally covered in horse poop.

We have been in the White Mountains now for 11 days and this is the best hike so far. Definitely hike counter clockwise. That way you finish hiking in more shade along the creek. We saw a beautiful black wild horse.

Just did this in winter before snow but water freezing over. We had fun walking on the frozen water.

I did what is officially the Springs Trail #633. See link for specific info. This is an excellent under 4 mi easy trail, in the forest, beautiful during the right season. It is so near housing and roads, etc., but it feels like you have "gotten away".
