Love this trail! It was a bit rugged with tree roots and rocks, but that's the type of trail we like. We enjoyed the Brothers peak and the switchbacks up to the passing between the Sisters peak was easy enough. Good trail for school aged kids.

We recently moved here from MN and had our son from Seattle and daughter from Virginia visit and hike here. We all loved it, the view of Mount Evans was lovely! Easy and pleasant hiking for connecting and conversation.

Great views! Well worth if you’re already around! Take yourself to the top!

Nice hike with beautiful rock outcroppings. We were lucky to be able to hike it in December. The trail was dry with no ice or snow, which would have made it much more difficult. Saw some very tame mule deer. Great views from the top!

Perfect, easy short hike for winter. If this was done in summer, I'd give 3 stars that are because it is boring and too easy. First snow day, beautiful Aspen trees covered with snow and ran into some deer. Thumbs up! Parking was only filled with 4 cars at 9 am.

Good trail for me to get used to altitude!

Nice hike, though the loop as shown on AllTrails actually appears to be a loop of the Ponderosa trails, three sisters trails, and the brothers lookout spur. we're unaware of an official brothers lookout loop other than once you've already made it to the top. the views were great, but get there early. We parked off the road since the trailhead had long ago filled with mountain bikers and early bird hikers.

Too busy, no parking, nothing special on hike itself.

This is a borderline great hike. The views at the top are simply spectacular. There is a ton of wildlife in the surrounding woods. The trail is well marked and half of it is shaded. The parking lot was full on the weekend but the trail itself was not that busy. Well worth the trip!

Heavily Traveled on the weekends. Not lightly traveled as the description says. Parking is difficult to find as well.

Nice hike! Great view on the rocks at Brothers Lookout. Only ran into a few other hikers on a weekday morning so not too busy.

nice and easy hike. The view from the lookout was pleasant, dog friendly trail with little elevation gain.

Very nice hike, especially considering how close to Evergreen it is. The difficulty is on the moderate side in spots on the north side of Sisters Trail. The Brother's Lookout segment is worth the time with a great view on top of the formation (plus a fun little surprise this time of year). We cut the hike short and finished by taking Ponderosa back to Sisters.

Easy hike with a decent view point of Evergreen. Some incline, majority was flat. Easy quick hike for when there’s not enough time to go farther.

Nice range of trails under ponderosa can make it a long or short hike....many options. Easy trails....well marked! Nice view from Brother's Lookout!

Busy but a great trail. Lots of boulders for the kiddos to play on.
