Wonderful trail! Difficult to navigate. We got lost (even with the loops). Still!! Beautiful views!! So many wildflowers and lakes to explore. I wasn’t expecting it to be so up-and-down, regardless, it provided beautiful view of tree tops right next to you! I loved it! Def worth the 5 miles!

Great hike! It’s very rocky and rooty but if you ever hike the SHT you know that’s what they are all about! It makes it that much more challenging, especially when your legs get tired, trying not to stun your toes a thousand times! I did both loops to make it worth while as I normally prefer a much longer hike. Great views and although the fall foliage was all done it was still quite pretty!
