Absolutely gorgeous loop leads through fields and forests, beautiful vistas and excellent elevation. There is an old private cabin along the route and an easy trail back to Revends Run Campground.

Easily accessed and solid hike with cool views throughout. A little confusing with Raccoon Trail seemingly pointing in both directions at every signage!

Easy hike with the dogs through some beautiful forest and with stunning views. Definitely recommend starting at the reverent campground trail head.

Beautiful hike but maps are confusing/misleading. We ending up hiking about 1.5 miles more than we expected because it doesn't include the access trails. It was still beautiful and a good hike but almost twice as far as we planned. Signs are helpful though

Quiet hike with beautiful panoramic views. Would especially love to do this hike in the fall with all the aspens!
