This one seems to be much better for Mountain Bikers than hikers. The distance made it a decent workout, but for those hikers looking for epic views and any sort of challenging ascents- look elsewhere.

Very nice trail through meadows of conifers, aspens and scrub oak. Going clockwise there is a fairly steep climb at about 2 miles. Otherwise mostly flat with few rocks or obstacles. Going down has nice long switchbacks so is neither hard nor technical. Trailhead and junction markers are inadequate. Multiple poorly marked choices. I highly recommend the All Trails record function to confirm position and direction. Otherwise you could wind up far from your starting point.

This is a nice trail for running and mountain biking. It’s clear enough to enjoy the views without having to look down constantly but still offers beautiful views of the pines and mountains. Not my favorite hike for mountain views but will be back to snowshoe and longer trail runs

I really liked this trail through the forest! If you’re hiking, I would suggest doing the loop clockwise. There is a pretty strenuous stretch a few miles in, but you get your climbing out of the way for most of the hike. Mountain bikers are typically going the other direction so it allows you to see them coming better. I’d hike again!

This is mainly a mountain biking trail. Hikers and dogs should use caution. This is a lot of downhill terrain so mountain bikes are moving fast.

Most trails in this system are fairly easy, well-signed, and a nice hike. We’ve done 1&2, but today we hiked the 3.7 mile West Loop. Best start is to park at Junction Creek Rd milepost 5. The trail is right at the side (high) of the road.

I tried using map that downloaded for trails 1&2 the map is inaccurate. if not other people downloading maps we would have had trouble negotiating the trail.

Awesome hike! Note that the gate to this trail is only open between May and October. Perfect time of year for hike, just cooled down and the fall colors were coming out. Parts of the trail are well marked and easy to follow, others not so much. We did a little backtracking and guessing, but it's pretty close to the road where it gets confusing so not a big deal. Saw a few deer, which is rare for us with our noisy dogs! Only did Chutes 1 this time(5 Miles), but will go back and add in part of 2 next time.

Sept 10, 2017 9:00 am still hiking this trail. Be cautious. At the cattail swampy area about 8200 ' walked up on a mom bear and her cub. Be safe. I like this trail though. Keep an eye on the path as parts of it are not as worn.
