Good hike, pretty easy, not too steep. Very pretty scenery, transitioning from Aspen, to dense pine and then to the top of the hill which is covered in wildflowers (at least in mid June). Great views of the area from up top. Coming down was strange, we ran into a spot where the trail was absolutely riddled with giant fallen trees, not sure if they are thinning forest here but most of them looked to be uprooted and toppled. Could have traversed the maze of horizontal trees but instead found alternative route that connected back to the loop. Overall fun hike!

An awesome hike for beginners or folks with small children. Our 7 year old has no problem completing this hike, and our 18 month old can even do some of it out of his pack. You can see many birds, and signs of moose and deer. About halfway through, there is a nice fire pit with some benches around it - a great place to stop for a picnic! We have done this hike a few times now, to train for some of the harder hikes in the area. There is a point where you intersect with a dirt road of sorts... stay straight to stay on the trail. If you turn right, it is a shorter, steeper way back down, and you will intersect with this trail again to finish the loop.

Great afternoon hike. At first it is a little noisy from all the off road vehicles that ride in the area but after a half mile the noise disappears. I think I will also post the pictures on google earth so other can see the beauty off this short hike. Nice mountain drive to get there from Rock Creek.

Nice trail in the Rock Creek Area just south of Hansen, quite a 4wd drive to get there from Hollister. The trail starts out in the sothern campsite in Petit campground and parallels the road for the first 3/8 of a mile as it crosses a few unnamed streams, bridges are present but unneeded when we went, then it circles west thru some large lava boulders giving some interesting views of Pike mountain, Kum Ba Yah Camp and Tawakani camp for about a 1/4 mile before looping north thru an established forest with the sound of owls hooting as we were late evening didnt see much wildlife but could hear them starting up with their nightly routines, the trail continues north with a westernly swing thru an established forest not giving many views but relaxing solitude as no one else was on the trail even though Petit Campground was full. A few trails are close and could be built into a overnighter with the Pike Mtn Trail (FT7239) or the Bald Hill/ Faen Spring Trail (FT7137). Overall a very easy hike to do with children or just to settle down a dutch oven dinner. I only gave it a three star rating as it only had limited views and no real destination but was excellent to break in a new pair of boots.
