Trail was nice and had few people. Pretty muddy and lots of wet leaves so be careful with footing. If you are at the very top move down the rock just a little bit towards the lake to get to a ledge/overlook with a great view. About 5 minutes in we weren't sure that we were on the right trail. Yes you do need to cross the creek. After that point we found it pretty clear.

Great trail but was surprised to see how many people were on it looking at fall foliage. I had my dog with me and needed to walk around to the other side of Lake Solitude at the top just to have a little section to myself. With that said, trail was great. Definitely moderate level and a little bit wet at times but we were all good puddle jumpers. I would 100% recommend this trail.

HikingGreat!

Gorgeous views at the top and foliage the whole way - definitely recommend during leaf peeping season. It was fairly crowded when we went, 11am-1pm Ish on a Sunday. Took us about 2 hours and mileage was spot on at 4.5 miles. The viewpoint over the lake is not the same as the summit, so follow the trail or follow the people for beautiful views of the mountains and lake. The overlook area is fairly small but we were able to find a nice ledge spot to enjoy the view. If we did it again we’d factor in time to do a loop around the lake which we saw others doing and bet would be beautiful.

Don’t know if anyone else felt this way, but it was very confusing haha we got lost quite a few times and were pretty avid hikers! Also the summit is a bit small but a BEAUTIFUL view.

Perfect day for a solo fall hike! The trails are beautiful with all of the colorful leaves. A couple slippery spots from the leaves on the ground so be careful when descending. View at the top is totally worth it this time of year!!

Great hike! Trail had a nice steady incline. There was a beautiful lake along the way where you can take a quick break before making your way to the top! There were a lot of leaves on the ground making it slippery so shoes with a good grip is a must !

This was a great Saturday morning trail. It took us about 3 hours round trip (allowing some time to relax by the lake before coming back down). The trail itself was more or less a steady incline all the way. I was very happy. I was accompanied by a novice hiker who had a harder time, but still made it. Around noon it started to become more crowded.
