Good for easy hiking and snowshoeing. Hiking in canyons carved thousands of years ago. Snow caped mountains.Can see Wichita mountain and Chief mountain.

This was a nice morning hike to get the blood moving. Passed a trail runner and a couple others enjoying the morning. Felt safe hiking solo.

Went hiking with my sister and Aunt. We are all over 50 and “then some”. This was a great hike. The beginning mile or so is uphill and rocky but once you get to the flatter land along the water it is much easier. We are here in Nov so there was snow to contend with. One particular area later in the hike was snow covered and the most challenging. We did the hike in a little over 2 hours. We turned around at some fallen trees and our total hike was about 5 miles.

Absolutely stunning views from an easy/moderate trail in a valley. About a 1/4 mile in, there’s a meadow and creek to the left. Step off. The view is fantastic. Many pictures were taken. Then, when you get to the trail crossing near the end, turn right onto Gore Range Trail, go up about a mile and you will be able to see where the two mountains you’ve seen the entire trail meet. Breathtaking views. Beware those afraid of heights, the trail is on a steep grade and can be dizzying for some.

Beautiful waterfalls and snow! Check out the waterfalls up close in the woodsy area ... you'll have to leave the main trail but well worth it!! if you see a large line of coiled wire, ya know you're there!

Went on a weekday. Hardly anyone there! Simply beautiful. Be sure to take excursions to the creek off the main trail to be surprised with a variety of elements including waterfalls. This is a stunningly beautiful hike!

Great hike especially if you're looking for an easy hike. No lakes and not many views but you can hear the river while hiking.

Hit the trail late on a Sunday afternoon. Saw two people the entire hike. Beautiful meadows and water along the trail. Good mixture of shade and open areas. Trail was really nicely maintained and the aspens added ribbons of color. Will be back!

A really nice, easy trail with a small waterfall at the end. It is mostly shaded but there are some open areas with great views. It wasn't as crowded as I expected.

Busy busy even for the middle of the week (august). There were many times we needed to step to the side or pass hikers going up. Everyone was sticking to the trail. Not so peaceful knowing there was a group of hikers on your tail and every lookout point we were joined by several other groups. A few sections get steep but overall a pretty consistent slope the entire time.

Great hike, just a little steep and the beginning but it levels out and has great views. Small waterfall at the turnaround point. Perfect hike to get adjusted at the beginning of a trip.

Nice Trail as you hear the creek rushing down the mountain along the way. We hiked up to almost the connection to the Gore trail. There isn't much to see up there and you start diverging from the creek. If I were to do it again, I would stop at the Eagles Nest Wilderness sign. The trail gets much narrower past that point. We had hiking poles and I wouldn't do this hike without them. However, my husband is 61 and I'm 57 so we're not as young and spry as younger folks.
