Great moderate trail with a variety of scenery including mountain vistas and hiking along the river. Do it counter clockwise from the trailhead.

Incredible views along this hike. Well worth the trip! The mosquitos were a little too friendly though.

This hike should be rated as easy- not much incline. Was absolutely beautiful especially the part along the river. The trailhead is at the end of a residential neighbourhood

Really nice hike today without 8 year old. Elevation was great. Mix of woods, open spaces, and river trails. Great!

Great almost 360 views at a rocky summit. Take some time there! Good trail. Mid October we had mud and snow. Beautiful all the way!

Nice trail with lots of shade. Taken the short and the long route. Takes you through beautiful meadows where I have seen wild horses, and higher elevation with rocky landscape and wildflowers.

This trail had great views of the Sawtooths and a nice creek to cool off in. It was beautiful and very well maintained. There are so many other trails connected to this loop as well, so you can hike until your heart is content. It made for a fantastic afternoon!
