Great trail, lots of bear markings so be watchful! Didn't make it quite to the end as weather was turning ominous. Would highly recommend it!

Beautiful trail! Some overgrown grass in areas, so make sure to wear bug spray! We turned around after 3 miles in due to a mountain lion on the trail! He was chilling on a rock in front of us and didn't seem concerned with us, but we weren't comfortable continuing on. There were several small creeks and streams that would be good for dogs.

Stunning, alpine woods. Alongside a creek for portions of the way. Some wildflowers were out. Most of the outbound trek is uphill on compacted dirt trail. After the bridge, about 2 miles out, the trail is narrower and rockier due to less use, but still beautiful. We went at 8:30am and had the trail to ourselves.

Went about 6 miles (round trip). The trail is well maintained, with nicely varied uphill and downhill sections of the trail. Trail conditions were dry.

Mostly uphill. Very narrow with high grass in many spots. Lots of Aspen trees and woods scenery. Go as far as you like and enjoy!

We were there on May 28th and the gate was locked, but we walked 2 miles to trailhead and it was worth it. Most of trail is beautiful single track with lots of aspen. Very pretty setting along a creek. Moderate and consistent upslope. Sections of trail were pretty sloppy and muddy after prior days rain. Overall, excellent trail.

Nice easy trail! We turned back at the bridge. Lovely combination of forest, tall grasses, and wildflowers on the hike, and the creek was beautiful. We only saw a couple other people along the way, so it was nice and quiet.
