I hiked this in Mid-October, but it is by far my favorite so far. It was a bit snowy when I hiked it with my dog, and it was absolutely gorgeous. There is a beautiful waterfall halfway up, and eventually you get above tree line and come to an abandoned mine with old artifacts scattered around. Beautiful, amazing hike.

Hiked 10/20/17. Snow on trail was manageable with boots/yaktrax. Once we got above the trees snowshoes were necessary (conditions were snowy, quite windy), which we didn't have so we had to turn back. Great views though! Definitely a good workout.

This hike was very nice and pretty, but the snow was very deep once you're up above the trees, which made it difficult and hard to find the trail. It was nice up til then.

Love this trail. We went there twice this year. The flowers, creeks, awesome view above the tree line.

This trail was fairly difficult. Steady incline all the way up. Water source for dogs, and lots of pretty flowers. Great views. At the top there is an old mine shaft that my dog and I are convinced is haunted. Enjoy!

Absolutely loved this hike! Good steep incline through the woods, and gorgeous views above treeline. Was able to trail run down about half of it without worrying about big rocks/tripping hazards.
