Great views from start to finish. The hike up to the south ridge is steep but worth it for the great views in several directions. The hike to the south ridge and to the mill totaled 7.6 miles

Pretty steep climb but worth it for the incredible views when you clear the tree line. We had 3 kids with us, ages 4, 8, and 9, and they all handled it fairly well. Only minor complaining. We loved seeing the cabins and mine remnants which were the reason we chose this particular trail. Lots of cute marmots when you reach the rocky portion of the trail near the very top. Wish we had seen more animals though. Overall, terrific hike and I would definitely recommend it!

I love this trail...it's an old jeep road that's shaded with brief mountain glimpses u til it opens up into a great mountain amphitheater! The old mining cabins add to the great vistas. You can continue past the cabins to see more remnants or backtrack a few feet and take the right fork in the trail heading up to the ridge line. Today the wildflowers were spectacular on the climb to the ridge! At the top there are 360 degree views of numerous mountain ranges. No bugs today.
