A couple of friends and I hiked this trail in late June and it was a nice workout. Some portions were steep enough to really make you work and others, not. You’ll have a wide range of views from a river in the distance, to mountains, to evergreen trees at the peak. We had a close encounter with an elk in a beautiful meadow area; in the distance you could see another female elk with 2 calves. There’s a trailhead with parking available. It’s not a hard trail and just what the doctor ordered to “get away from it all”.
