The trail begins off the base of Peak 9, near Quicksilver chairlift. It takes you along a creek through pine forest and meadows. You can eventually connect to Spruce Creek Trail. Great scenery and a relaxing, family-friendly path.

Nice hike, very convenient location and access. Not tremendous views, but it's a pretty forested hike. Fair amount of snow, especially on upper parts of the trail, but mostly packed so not much postholing. I'd say a 1-2 out of 5 for difficulty if you're in reasonable hiking shape.

Hiked this trail this morning. The weather was amazing. Fairly easy hike. Even today, didn't need snow shoes, just a good pair of hiking boots or shoes.

I'd say it's one of the easier trails. A good option for a trail run! You start along a pretty creek then it turns wooded. If you want to go to crystal peak you can take this trail from town. Easy accessible from Main Street.
