Long trail and can get lost very easily. There are so many trails that branch off of each other. Relatively easy trail just long and barely no shade. Very hot hike. Probably wouldn’t do this one again unless it’s spring or fall weather.

Signs are burned but can use the map on the app to figure out where to go. Clear Sunday afternoon and just a couple of bikers on the trails

Trail great but the fire last year destroyed the trees, brush and vegetation, very open and no shade

Its all burned from the Carr fire but still enjoyable to see the views of lassen shasta and more. Keep your gps or map handy as there are many off set trails with no signs. Given time this will be a beautiful hike again. Trailhead near Mary lake and is where two burnt homes are rebuilding.

Trail through ashes and parts that weren’t touched by the Carr fire. Impressive and heart touching. Many side trails available, strongly recommend to keep GPS with you all the time to know where to go.

Nice trail but the app directions were hard to follow as there are many offshoot trails. If you get off the trail onto some of the offshoot trails it can go from easy to hard pretty quickly. I went down a hill and ended up sliding about 10’ down the hill on my rear. I did comes home with something to talk about.

#tenlegstosunset Tried out a new trail, which turns out to be a series of bike trails. The saved course on All Trails didn’t do much good at first since there are a variety of trails and all off shoots seemed well groomed enough. GPS and map worked well since it’s pretty close to neighborhoods and the city. It was a nice workout regardless and once I got a handle I realized it’s a good option close to home. Went late in the day, so we ran into nobody else. My concern was where I parked, not sure if it was someone’s property or an easeway.

What a blessing to have such a great trail right in the middle of west side neighborhoods! Great views of the valley to the east and klamaths to the west. I turned back at the vista point, but will be sure to revisit to follow it further.

I do not think this is an "easy" trail. Comparable to Hornbeck.
