East Trailhead: Turn west on Buffalo Park Road from County Highway 73, just south of downtown Evergreen, and travel approximately one mile. You can also reach this trailhead by foot or bike from the Dedissee Trail, originating at the Evergreen Lakehouse. West Trailhead: This larger lot is a 1/2 mile west of the east trailhead.

This hike was beautiful and easy. I plan to take some visitors here in a few months! I agree with an earlier review about taking a picture of the map before starting, or taking a paper map with you on the trail to make sure you’re going in the right direction.

Very easy but heavily trafficked trail. I recommend taking a picture of the map at the trailhead. This is not really one solid loop but a combination of multiple trails. It can be a short 1 mike hike or a long 10 mike hike depending on the combination of trails chosen. Lots of bikes and trails can get quit congested. This is a great trail for families with young children.

A really sweet decent after a pretty techincal uphill. For the initial hour of climbing I had to hop off of my bike 3 times. It was a pretty hard climb but the drop is awesome and steep. Some sweet switchbacks and rock lines make this trail a good option.

Great for a hike with kids. Lots of different trails to make it longer or shorter. Very busy on a Sunday morning.

Nice way to get away from the city and have an enjoyably lazy walk on some pretty trails to get back to center.
However “lightly trafficked” is not the way to describe these trails... but I’ll definitely be back.

I went about 7:30am today and while the parking lot was mostly full, I only ran into a handful of other hikers. Plenty of open space and lightly wooded areas to take in. I didn’t see much wildlife but there are pockets of wildflowers growing and I was lucky enough to see some hummingbirds. Trails are clearly marked. It was a nice, easy Saturday morning hike!

I thought this trail was kind of boring, but still good to get out to a place with no snow in March, which is when we did it.

It is a nice easy hike. The evergreen summit was fantastic. The trails through the three sisters is good but not great.

Super dog friendly and beautiful trail. Incline is steady in parts and more severe in others but overall it’s not that difficult. Rewards are the view at brothers lookout.

Nice and easy trail. The overlook was pretty too. Dog friendly. A bit icy and snowy at parts, but micro spikes aren't necessary.

Scoped this trail out to potentially take family here this weekend, and will definitely be returning. The weather was perfect and the trails were clear for the most part, with little ice and manageable snow.

High traffic park with limited parking. beautiful area with great rock croppings. I created my own path trying to get 6 miles in, which I was pleasantly surprised on how quiet and peaceful it was. Started on the west trailhead on silver Fox to sisters trail. Took a left at bearberry trail. Hooked up with mountain muhly trail and completed the 1.5 mile loop.Connected to homestead back to my truck. Great Day!

Hiked 6.5 miles on this on a Sunday morning. Arrived at 8:30 to a 1/2 full parking lot. Get there early!

Great mixed rolling hills, short steep climbs and pretty views. Lots of trail markers to keep you on path with many options to tack on more mileage easily. Lots of polite mountain bikers. People were out on horseback, running the trails, bouldering the rocks and snacking at the peak.

I've hiked these trails 10+ times and always bring visitors here. It's really a lovely and well maintained space that's got a lot of good material to explore.

Enjoy!

Great network of trails with a couple different access points. Saw only a couple other hikers on a Thursday in September. Did see quite a few mountain bikes though but they were all polite and courteous.
