This is my second review of this trail and would not recommend it during the summer. Too hot and most of the trail was closed due to Eagle nesting. Signs say that it is closed until July 31. We were able to get about 2.6 miles in and had to turn around. Not much shade on the trail and it was a hot day. It is a great trail for cooler weather.

This was a great walk today. Temp was about 70-71. Not a lot of shade so keep in mind as it gets hotter. Wanted to ascent Gray’s Peak but the area is still closed for bald eagle nesting. Most of the area has burned, but there are still pretty vista and many trees. We decided to do a loop and walked across some private property (YMCA camp). Plan to come again once the peak is open.

So the description is a bit confusing and the estimations are different than what the forest service provides on their hand outs at the discovery center. Here is what we figured out: We started at Hanna flats campground and got all the way to the intersection to the fire road 2N70. That was about 3.9 miles. At this point we turned back and returned to the campground. Total time was 4.5 hours, 7.8 miles with a 1/2 hour lunch break. We could have continued to gray's peak which the map shows as another 2.75 miles each way which would have made the total round trip about 13.3 Miles . My advice is stop at the discovery center and get the map and trail descriptions from them. All in all a beautiful hike. Weather was perfect with different many views along the way. Note that you do not see big bear lake on this trail.

Hanna Flats campground website says 7.8 miles. Alltrails estimate is definitely correct (12.2 miles). Steady incline, well marked trail, nice footing, nice views along the way. We took the dogs and stopped for lunch and water breaks for the dogs and took us about 6 or 7 hours. expect to come across mountain bikers on the trail the last couple of miles.
