This was a great trail, but the listing should be updated to reflect that this is no longer a loop. The Rosalie portion of the loop just upon starting the trail has been blocked completely by logs, and there was clearly a sign that was removed. It is now decommissioned. If you're hiking this, be aware that you can still access Rosalie, but it'll be more of a in and out trail. We just hiked in on Tanglewood, went past the junction with Rosalie, and came back down the same way. When we went there was a bit of snow on the ground, but nothing unmanageable or too icy. I might recommend a car with at least higher clearance, as a few sections of the road in had pretty big potholes, but nothing too bad.

HikingGreat!RockySnow

Really nice trail - some nice views, would be amazing when the aspens are changing. Highly recommend counter-clockwise loop when there is any snow since the south part (first leg according to the current alltrails recording) since that part is heavily shaded - you'd rather come down that than up it. Today there was snow in the shade ... about 1/3 of the loop, I'd say. If you try to go clockwise, note that the split after parking lot is currently blocked with a couple of logs.

Nice loop. One of the turns on the trail is hard to find. There’s a small cairn, but easy to miss. Snowy already!

Good hike, 6 miles. Go counter clockwise. Not overly challenging.

Great scenic trail. Only thing to watch out for is the hair pin turn on the trail that is easy to miss. There is a small stack of rocks where the turn is located. I will include a picture of the turn

Great trail but unfortunately all aspens leaves have fallen. Looks like we were a couple days off.

Loved loved loved this trail! We barely saw anyone the whole time and the fall colors were incredible. You take a dirt road the last part of the drive to the trailhead and this just made us feel even more isolated. It was wonderful! Some other hikers said it’s moose territory we saw some droppings but no moose this time. We will be back to hike again!

Really beautiful trail! Not busy on a Saturday during peak leaf peeping season (although we did start later in the day). The missed turn is real! We ended up doing an extra 5 miles on accident. It may be easier to miss it when going to the right to start (across the little bridge). Would maybe recommend starting towards the left side of the loop. Keep an eye out for the stacked rocks as markers for the turn.

Gorgeous day and gorgeous trail. I appreciate all suggestions to go counter-clockwise and really watch for the sharp turn. We actually made a mistake much earlier on by not crossing the bridge going up Rosalie. One note is that I think this trail is closer to 6 miles than to 5.2. For us it was 6.3 but we had that one mistake. But I'm seeing a lot of other recordings ~6. As other have said, coming back down is quite rocky. We have small dogs and were quite glad to have brought a sling with us.

This is the 2nd time I did this trail. The first time was during the week and there were very few people which was great but I never found the turn to complete a loop (I asked every hiker that I did see and they all said there was no way to do a loop) and did it as an out and back. This time we found the turn - very exciting but I'm not sure we were on a trail coming down. If we were, it was really rocky (like a riverbed with sharp large rocks). We watched our feet all the way down. Since there weren't any epic views, it just really wasn't worth it to me. Of course I may have been off the trail or am less goat than others in which case you might enjoy it. I won't do this trail again but I might try one of the others in the same location. The narrow road had some serious holes but doable - even saw some small cars back there. High clearance would be preferable.

Pleasant trail. Ample parking. Did the loop counterclockwise. Aspens were probably on point a week ago but many of the leaves had already fallen. Much of the hike down was among a rocky wash which made for a bit of unsteady footing.

Absolutely beautiful trail! Leaves we falling, aspens quaking, Deer Creek glowing with amazing sound. We hiked clockwise. The beginning was fairly steep and very rocky.

Excellent trail! We went around 2:30pm, and there was hardly anyone on the trail, which was wonderful. We went counterclockwise, so there first half was a good leg workout, and the last bit was very rocky. We took our dog, and she did fine. There are quite a few false trails, so download the map and consider printing it. If you go counterclockwise, cross the bridge instead of going straight. Several people missed this, and we weren't sure because there was a good clear path straight ahead. the same is true for the second switchback turn toward the end. There was an old branch blocking the path, but the other direction wasn't on the map and wasn't a clear path. There was cairn marking where I knew the path was supposed to be, so we went that way. It was fine. It's a wonderful place and BEAUTIFUL place and the fall colors are at their absolute peak right now. Make sure you have a good map and follow it. I saw a number of people going off in weird ways. If nothing else, make sure you buy a fishing license, so your search and rescue is covered if you do get lost. LOL Enjoy!

Fall color was in full swing today. First half of trail is really nice. Return half coming down is pretty rocky. We saw a big bull moose but it was scared off by a runner. The moose went crashing down the hill through the Aspen's pretty hard to get away.
