Started at the South trailhead, views are gorgeous until it merged with the horse trail and you get off the foothills

the best hike I've done, 9 miles total. went through the loop be weary after crossing the river. the trail tends to divert. I heavily relied on this map to guide us back to the trail. also, take pants, theres a lot of thorny brush

Great trail. Good condition. I did it clockwise. Last 1.5 miles were hiring but it was still well worth it!

Not heavily trafficked. Trail is a bit overgrown and hard to follow and rocky at some points- recommend downloading map or gps to stay on course. Last 1.5 mile a bit boring following the park road on a soft sand horse trail. Some views from the top and creek crossing.

Hiked this trail today, because of erosion and overgrown vegetation, some of the trail was hard to follow. Obviously doesn’t get used that much. No shade, take plenty of water. The views were great.

First to Review

This is a no joke trail. If you plan to go back and forth, be ready to spend 5-6 hours of intensive trailing up and down, sometimes literally claiming. This trail is not labelled Hard because it is long, but because it will exhaust you. Bring a lot of water and electrolytes. As a less difficult alternative (about 4 hours) you can take West fork North to Coffman and back to Trade Post via Alexander trail.
