Fantastic trail close to home. Can be an excellent day hike, or a 1-nighter. I hiked about 6 miles (3 miles out & 3 back). With all the rain this year, and good snow pack up on Breckenridge, the water crossings were not easy little trickles. They were raging. But nothing too major. I took my mutt as I am trying to get her used to hiking. With a dog, the only negative about this trail--for me-- is that cattle guards are something we haven't found a creative & effective solution for.

This was a great, family-friendly trail. The water is high right now. There were some areas that we had to search for the best way to cross the stream. Or you could take the easy, freezing way and walk straight through! Next time, I'm wearing my water sandals. Watch out for the cows! They like to give people the evil eye! I would definitely come back:)

Creek was completely overrun after rain the previous day which made it look more like a River. Beautiful hike as everything is green from recent rains.. Made it 3.5 miles up before turning back as we got a late start.

Great hike, snowy and icy at the top but it's a great hike. Don't underestimate the time make sure you have enough daylight especially during winter. You could follow the trail up to 16 miles to pass Squirrel Meadow. Be prepared.

Beautiful area to hike. Easy to find as well. Just about 35 mins from the entrance of the canyon and a mile up kern canyon road. Great for dogs to run off leash. Lots of cows grazing around. There is a beautiful stream the flows through area as well.

Beautiful well kept trail. Very serene and easy to find. There is a gate but its open. Probably to keep wildlife in. My dog and I heard coyotes close by so it was time to leave but I loved it.

Not too bad of a trail. Not really a lot of shade and no water in the creek. But over all a fun, easy trail.

All year round this trail seems to stay beautiful. Especially so during the winter-spring months. The wildflowers are so pretty in their coloring. It puts a smile on your face. Easy to get to, easy trail. This one is in my back pocket if I can't travel very far.

What a fun family hike! We saw lots of family's with children. The path is well worn an has just the right amount of upgrades and then leveling off. We passed through 4 running creeks and had lunch at the last one and the water was cold and refreshing. Spring is a good time to go as we saw lots and lots of wild flowers. I would not suggest a summer hike as there is no shade until you reach a creek. I rate the tail as easy to moderate depending how far you hike.

Went today and it was great. Great for dogs but keep them on leash because they're are rattlesnakes (venomous), and salamanders/frogs (poisonous). But, we had a great time and there was a lot to look at and tons if shade and rocks by the water so we plan in bringing our young daughter next time for a shorter trip.
