there seems to be some confusion on the mileage....10 miles or 6.5 as All Trails states/ I have hiked this numerous times and it is rough...but it comes out at some beautiful views...I like it in the snow better. I will be going again this weekend which is 7-8-17. see you all on the trail.

This was a beautiful hike! However, it was very very difficult. There were a lot of fallen trees and it was very steep. Also, this says it's 6.5 miles, but it's closer to 10 miles. I work out daily and this was pretty challenging for a day hike.

Great hike; however, it is very steep uphill, pretty strenuous. Be prepared with lots of water and time. Loose rocks and lots of downed trees, but pretty meadows and great views at a few points. Six of us did it in around 6 hours roundtrip, and we all workout daily and consider ourselves in shape, but was still pretty tough going up!

this is fun. ..trees down. ..be careful

This was a great hike! We didn't complete it due to taking our 7-year old - that was a bit long for her. But I think we made it about 2/3 of the way before turning around. We will definitely go back when it's just the adults. Beautiful scenery and wonderful peace and quiet.

it was fun & pretty & we hiked in a snow storm on 4-22-17 in knee deep snow. lots of trees down on the trail.

It's a workout! Hiked this trail with a group of coworkers/friends, it was all up hill (at least the 3 mile we hiked)! We are weekend warrior hikers and it was a challenging hike. One guy said "My lungs were burning on the way up and my knees were aching on the way down!" There are some overlooks with beautiful views and some pretty meadows to stop and rest. Trees were starting to change color. Parking lot is small but you can also park on the road.

Beautiful wildflowers, an abundance of butterflies and a very worthwhile end point. Enjoyed the well marked trail! Pretty rocky and times, could be an issue for some pups!

Fun little trail. We didn't quite make it to the cabin at the end, too much recent snow made following the trail a bit difficult. However, we will be back!

Absolutely gorgeous! Mostly uphill but we'll worth the effort. Didn't make it to cabin, too much snow that high...will definitely be back!

Nice trail. Easy to follow. Lots of shade. Greats views as you get higher. We did about 2.5 miles each way. Would have gone further but ran into a lot of snow packs as we got higher. We were not geared for that. Will come back some time.
