This trail was surprisingly beautiful in the Spring. The colors were vivid with all the plants, aspens, and wildflowers and the trail was very easy to follow. The first 1.5 miles is a nice single track, and then you’re an road after that. The trail is a bit steep, but definitely worth the effort. This is definitely not a Summer trail as shade is limited and it is not an easy hike.

Great trail for a tough workout close to home. Trails are pretty loose and steep at some points so I would recommend hiking shoes.

Trails were a little bit confusing with the dirt bike trails and small diversions with no markings. Still a fun hike with some steep inclines. Fun!!

it was Okay. lots of beautiful yellow flowers. super steep. I made the mistake of coming back on a motorcycle trail and not the hiker trail and it was so steep and gravely that i fell and had to scoot down in a crouch.

Saw a bunch of dirt bikes and off roader's, but no other hikers. Such a great workout!

We couldn’t find the trail that is mapped on here but we still hiked to the top using different trails. Most of the hike is just straight uphill so it’s a great workout and getting back down was interesting but the view was beautiful. We had fun but probably won’t do this hike again.

It was kind of confusing at first to find. The directions lead you to a neighborhood. You have to follow the trailhead back behind the houses. Overall, the trail is beautiful with many different kinds of flora. The fauna included birds, rodents, and lizards. Hiking on a cloudy day is a must, because of the minimal vegetation. We ended up not being able to hike the whole trail because we were on a time crunch. Nonetheless, it was nice and our dogs had a great time too.

Hiked in the middle of June, lots of wildlife and many different types of wildflowers and just a few patches of snow. When the trail offered a split I stayed on the service road because of the more gradual change in elevation. Loved the view (some power lines ) but overall great hike. Took me about 4 hours of hiking to summit and back to the car.

Really awesome trail!! Just be sure to regularly check your maps and come back down the right canyon (unlike me).

Solid workout. Strongly suggest downloading the map and checking your phone every once in a while to make sure you are moving in the right direction. I did a slightly different route but still got to the top. Very easy to get lost going up and down due the many trails linking together. Steep climbing no matter how you slice it. Very good hike. Some snow near the top.

one of the pictures shows a waterfall, does anyone know where exactly that is on the trail?
