Beautiful, easy trail with nice wildflowers. We could not find the loop so did an out and back.

A little tougher than I thought it would be with young children but beautiful and peaceful!

Did the hike this morning from 7:30 to 9:30 am. Could not find the loop so did an out and back. Simply heavenly- gorgeous hike. Wildflowers were starting. Did not encounter anyone on trail until we were almost done closer to 9:15 am

So beautiful! A slight rough start with mud, water, and fallen trees (had my 2 year old in the hiking backpack). But once past that, it's smooth sailing and so awesome

It was really lovely during fall, with golden aspen, the babbling creek and blue sky with big storm clouds. It was enjoyed by both advanced hikers and those who never hike in our party. I would def. recommend it.

Nice, fairly flat trail. Great views along the creek, especially once out of the woods.
