I am definitely coming back in the fall for the aspen trees. Loved the trail with a friend's dog, went through beautiful meadows with wildflowers. I had to make sure that I was on the right trail several times, as there are a lot of turnoffs. There were plenty of people on the trail who helped me make sure I was still on the right path. There is no service in the area, so be sure you take a trail map or know for sure where to go. Very dog and kid friendly trail. You are supposed to pay to park because it's a state park FYI.

6-10-17 -JN/ OT; started at campground via raccoon trail. We saw a moose sling way. The views are worth it. For family / out of town guests-- you can drive to the view point too.

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?
