A very touristic hike which brings you to a nice 360• view of the area. There was some snow what made it a bit slippery. Unfortunately we couln't do the whole loop because of the snow on the other side which made it quite difficult without proper gear.

Fun trail but I followed the directions to the trailhead and it took me on a different trail it was 10 miles round trip to panorama point.

Nice trail with a lot of ups and downs throughout (which is nice for older knees). The Racoon Trail loop is slightly different now as the original trail is closed for rehab. The downside is that this trail parallels the road for most of the way, so you never really get a wilderness experience.

Very nice hike there today. Beautiful view of the mountains along the way. Definitely a moderate trail, no real difficulties or gotchas. A good afternoon outing.

Not the prettiest hike but fairly easy round trip. I would definitely drive farther north into mountains for a more scenic hike next time though. Maybe it's the time of year?

Steep at times, it was an excellent work out going up. The views really were "panorama" views at the top! We brought visitors from out-of-state and it was a perfect trail to show them the great views.

Easy hike to get some good exercise and end with a great view of the town below. The majority of the trail is sheltered from the wind and has both sunny and shady stretches.

Liked this trail alot - had great views at the Panaroma Point. Cars are allowed to drive up to that point and there are vault toilets there as well. The views were great and the trail was easy to follow and well marked. Not a hard hike at all, but a fun one. - Completed Oct 29 2016
