Moderate hike, nice hike because there are many trees and the shade keeps you cool! Also our dog is the best trail dog and he had a blast.

This was a great moderate hike for my wife and I today! Very scenic trail. There was still snow along the way and about 10-12 medium size snow patches to traverse on the trail. Snow is melting fast and the streams, rivers and waterfalls are in full flow. Check out Lake Arrowhead along the way as a side diversion - beautiful! Side note - we met three amazing ladies all in their 70s who traversed the trail with no excuses. They were very inspirational - Eileen, Margaret and Nancy. Happy Trekking.
