A great hike and you can do it all year—even in the dead of winter. Stay to the right of the fork in the summer for shade on the climb up.

Really fun hike. Very pretty and a lot of wildflowers. It took us a little under 2 hours to complete. Highly recommended

Average, in my opinion, but I'm from SLC so I'm probably spoiled. Lots of pretty flowers, including hundreds of sego lilies up on top.

As another reviewer says, take the fork to the right so you're in the shade for the climb up. Beautiful many wildflowers even in mid July!

Great Hike !! Nice reward of the views once you get to the ridge.
Just long enough to get some exercise in for the afternoon.

Nice quick hike with pretty good views and a quick return. I bet in September it is spectacular with more leaves on the aspen!taking lots of photos with several stops only took 2 hours.

Moderate! Great views of Bald Mountain and the golf course. Nice breeze and not too challenging! Great hike for the first timer!

Great trail. Pass through wild flowers, cottonwood, pine forest and low scrub bushes. Great views down the canyon.

One of my favorite trails ever. Several different ways to go at cross trails. Enter at the Hemingway Memorial.

Hiked the loop with the take-off point at the Hemingway Memorial. Spectacular views and wildflowers. Still very green in early July. Two nice memorials at the top.

Beautiful hike . Loved the trail the wild flowers and aspen trees! Seemed like a pine tree came along right when we needed shade .

Decent hike with steady incline and well-marked path. Limited parking (12 cars) at base. @ 0.3 miles up the trail there is a marking splitting the loop. I strongly recommend taking the loop counter-clockwise as the right path has plenty of shade and many places to rest. The path on the left is fully exposed switchbacks through sagebrush with no shade and no easy places to rest. This hike basically follows the bottom of the gully then does a few long switchbacks through high pines before walking down the spine to a decent overlook on the return.

Great hike with stunning views of bald mountain and the ketchum valley. Beautiful meadows of wildflowers in the summer, and nice shade in the first part of the hike.

A great loop hike with beautiful views of Baldy and the valley. Two miles from town, this hike is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Climb up a valley with aspens and make sure to look back, the views behind you are great. Loop back on a ridge with views of Baldy and Sun Valley below. Great hike for kids, bring the family.
