Great hike. Loved the scenic views of Vista Verde Ranch. Would definitely hike this again. Have hiked it about 4 times between work breaks.

Great but long hike if you start at trail 1188 off cr429. Go to trail 1188A over to trail 1170 down to "Hinman Lake trail head". Better than going from N to S.
Estimate 5 hours
Moderate

There was a bit of mud and water on the trail due to the late snow melt this year but overall it was a beautiful hike.
