Hiked 11/15/19. This hike is 3.5 out and 3.5 back (total logged was 7.4). Blowdown was pretty bad. Lots of trees fallen over the trail. Great view of the spires at the end of the trail. No snow on most of the trail the day we hiked. Saw lots of wildlife scat but no actual wildlife sittings.

Very pretty, easy hike. Next to Moose Creek for a good portion. Lots of gorgeous wildflowers!

A very nice day hike up to the Wedge Agree with those who think this is a moderate hike. Also 3.5 miles out and 3.5 miles back.

Great hike through a well wooded area, alongside a pretty well-fed creek. Definitely very beautiful in many spots, the spires are something else... Few downed trees, but the trail was empty and quiet. Relatively little elevation climb until the last mile or so from what I remember. Note: LOTS of ticks, my dog and I were covered in them repeatedly, BUT, that's part of the experience I guess (it was a bad tick year).

Took the family up along with the fur children it was an amazing hike really just wonderful view. Three boys ages 10, 5, and 2 enjoyed it as well and to be honest across the second bridge I showed my boys how to do a little panning and actually found some gold flakes so it was just an amazing time. My only warning is this be careful with the dead trees near the trails we watched one crash to the ground as the wind picked up so hopefully forest service will be dealing with that soon.

Beautiful, easy hike along water... even after a mid-May snowfall:) We saw wolf tracks, bear scat and lots of birds.
