This is a great trail. It is steep and we climbed in August so it was a good work out. (I would not describe it as easy!) we rode the chair lift down. Great views from halfway up and at the top.

Great hike just before the mountain biking season, full access to the mountain, no need to stick to trail. Was very foggy at the top, make sure to take gear for all weather.

Interesting to hike around the chair lifts. Going up in tennis shoes was fine but coming down it was slippery.

Beautiful hike, steep in places. Nice and private, we only saw a few other hikers on the trail. We hiked the Log Chute trail to the top and enjoyed a great lunch and view.

Perfect summer hike from base to the top of the trail where you can treat yourself to refreshments and bbq at View Haus for having completed the uphill climb. The hiking trail surprised me as steeper than expected, especially in certain spots. It was fairly dusty and hot (August weather). I couldn't find anything that actually marked the true distance, but approx 3 miles total out and back is my guess. Just jog around the base a bit or to the resort directly from wherever you're staying in the area if you want to make it a longer distance workout.
