Great trail with spectacular views throughout. The TH is not marked and a few breakaway trails made it confusing. Great hike!

Trail is not marked well... or at all. I got lost a couple of times due to this.

Other than that, it is a beautiful trail. No streams for dogs to play in. It was snowy the day I went and some of the trail was very slippery and a bit dangerous, but that is part of hiking in snow. The inclines weren't​ too bad and the view was stunning. Overall a good trail, excited to try it again when the snow is gone.

Great hike! There's very little snow right now and not too many people either (we saw 2 other hikers). Beautiful views! The drive up the mountain is fun too!
