It has a nice mix of elevation gain and loss as well as creek for more than half of the loop. Its especially great during summer time, because you can hike or run and work up a nice sweat then dip in May of the pools along the trail.
Started just after 6 pm on a Wednesday night in March...ran out of daylight about 30 minutes before I got back to the car. Gorgeous hike, had the whole trail to myself. I can't wait to do it when it's a little greener or the fall colors are out.
Beautiful hike! You start by descending into the canyon, then hike along the brook at the bottom for a bit. Trail is quite easy on the way down, but you'll get a bit of a pump on the way back up! Gorgeous views!
Great hike! Did the loop. No snow or ice. Very dry. Great shade.
Good family trail.
Beautiful and fun! Our 11 yr old puggle and 11year old daughter had a great time!!
Missed the expansive mountain views on this hike but beautiful with the brook and forest. Difficult in some places crossing water but overall a great and fun hike.
