This could be a great trail. It is not however do to the snakes. Yes snakes, the rattlesnake variety. I have been with 2 different groups hiking this trail and have seen snakes both times. I have also talked to people I know that have gone on this trail and they have all said they have seen snakes on the trail. I would recommend walking with a stick, keep your eyes on the trail, and don't take animals.

Went up this Saturday 4-18-20, still some snow on the trail but all in all great hike. Gradual climb and didn’t make it to the top due to snow but great views from the whole trail.

Lots of mud on first mile, then all snow. Still worth it even this late in the season.

I’ve hiked this trail many times (Also called the Powerhouse trail or Talbert trail). This trail is somewhere around 15 miles long and I believe it ends at Verdi lake. Personally I’ve done 6.5 miles on this trail and while there are a few areas after the 4.5 mile mark that aren’t well maintained, it is a great trail still with awesome views.

This trail is great for beginners because it has a good mix of steep and flat parts. We went almost 3 miles today and I think the trail goes a lot further. We are going back next weekend to go even further.

Unsure of where the end is, but it was a fun hike with a lot of beautiful outlooks.

This was a really nice hike. The elevation climb wasn't too bad and is done in the initial first mile. The elevation starts, according to my Garmin, at about 6352 and peaks at 7800. The trail was well defined and could be used for biking and running. The trail is definitely NOT 3.3 miles out and back. I did just shy of 4 miles in one direction. I suspect the trail continued for at least another half mile. It isn't the most exciting trail, but does offer some beautiful views of the Lamoille Valley and the Ruby Mountains. I could see this being an ideal late fall / early spring hike as well as parking was fairly close to the canyon's entrance. There is no water on the trail and it was largely exposed, so be sure to bring supplies. I did see about half a dozen other people on the trail as well.
