Only negative is all the trucks and motorcycles. A very dusty trail due to that... otherwise it’s a great hike with great views... nice trees!

Nice trail, some steep areas that get a little exciting but mostly fairly tame driving. It can get hot, so keep water close, totally worth the ride for the views.

Great wide trail. Absolutely beautiful up in the Pine Tree areas. We were blessed with a cool morning, but not a shaded hike. Moderate hike, took longer than expected, as we did not have any parking at the trail head. Lots of friendly bikers, we missed the very top, but hiked 16 miles. We plan on a Fall Hike to make it. A must see.

Pretty long trail with a decent amount of elevation gain. Didn’t make it to the top so plan on taking a few hours to go out and back. Don’t go on a hot day, there’s not a whole lot of shade. Still very pretty.

This is a great trail to do with great scenery and views. Start off early in case all of the trail gates are open so that you have enough time to turn back around. You will need a 4x4 vehicle in some areas. Please don’t liter and help keep these trails clean for everyone’s enjoyment.

This is not a hard trail. I did this today in my stock G5 4Runner. No issues at all.

Great for off-roading, but kind of a boring trail. Good workout
