Tought trail to hike on compared to many others in the whites. Many many hunters out now in this area. Trail is tough at points being non maintained and non official. Muddy all the time and slippery in alot of spots. Take heed. In the spring and summer it is loaded with alot of insects. Just the nature of the area.

HikingGreat!

Sweet and doable trail with some slippery and then scrambling spots at the top. Worth it and then some!

Great views from the top for such a short hike. As others noted the area along the stream is slick and narrow.

There are some points where the trail needs to be moved. It was muddy today and parts of it were almost in the river. Other parts were very narrow because of erosion. The last section is very tough, especially when it's wet. The right turn to get onto the trail needs to be marked.

HikingMuddyScramble

We had a great time maneuvering our way up the twisty narrow trail and into the exciting rock climb at the top. The views were absolutely incredible! We were the first to the summit this morning and we hoped for lots of space to ourselves, but very quickly the summit began filling up and we met several hikers on the way down. The River was really pumping today! I think this is my new favorite spot.

Narrow trails with great foliage. Top is steep and requires some climbing so be careful with kids/dogs. Would have given this trail a higher rating if not for the “locals only” false vibe. The lot was full of out of state plates with idiots walking their dogs off leash. Hike started great but ended on a sour note hence the two stars. Beware.

A nice, short, but really rewarding hike with beautiful 360 views from the top. The last bit is quite steep but overall the moderate rating feels appropriate. The trail is narrow, but not difficult to follow under normal conditions. Could get tricky with snow on the ground or after dark though. It felt quite a bit off the beaten path and, later in the day, we were the only people on the trail, so everything was nice and quiet. Definitely worth a visit.

Although past peak, the leaves were a lovely, bright yellow. The top is very windy; take care!

Pretty trail. First third is on a road (no cars). Last third was pretty technical. Not very well marked but we didn’t get lost. We did not go up to the top because we had an 8 and 10 y/o with us. It was pretty technical and gusty at the top. Nice view even at the first ledge. Nice parts along the stream. Very few other hikers.

This was a nice little hike. Never super strenuous, but there were some spots at the end where we had to climb. Did it with our small dog and we had to carry her in a few spots. The view at the top was absolutely awesome

HikingGreat!Off trailScramble

Did this hike October 1st with my 2yr old. I had tried a few days before but didn't realize that I had to look for another trail other than the one I was on. So I walked right past it and went the whole way on the snow mobile path, which just leads to another road. It was too late in the day for me to bother trying to find the right path, so I came back a few days later with better directions. It's not marked but not difficult to find, it is about as wide as the trail you start out on, then it gets very narrow. As soon as you start to curve left on that snow mobile path, just look to the right and you'll see it. I got a little confused on the trail once. Where you first come to the brook, it looks like the trail goes across the stream but it doesn't. You walk along the brook for a little bit before crossing. Quite a few fallen trees to step over or under. I was nervous about the rock scrambling based off other reviews, but my 2 year old is a good climber and he did fine. ( He also wears a backpack leash ) Views at the top were amazing. We were the only ones at the top for a while. There were quite a few people on the trail going and coming. I'm not sure I would try this trail in the snow, it may be hard to recognize the path especially since it is marked with white markers.

HikingGreat!

This is a short trail with spectacular views. The first half is an easy walk, the second half has some scrambling but was very doable. The views are amazing. It’s very secluded and lightly trafficked... a true hidden gem. Took us a little under 2 hours up and back.

HikingGreat!Scramble

Love this locals trail. Went on a Saturday and they were other ppl but not too crowded. It's definitely off the beaten path and no signs for the trail. Thanks to recent reviews I was able to find the trail fairly easy. Park at the end of the road by the gate, then take the unpaved path until you see a trail veering to the right. The trail is not a the end of the path - it's just the first right. Also, other ppl mentioned the beginning of the trail is boring - I just found it flat and peaceful and I enjoyed it! Loved this hike. Relatively short and moderate. My fear of heights was tested at the steepish rock scramble to get to the top - you'll need all fours to get up - going down was easier (ps. I'm a little wimpy with this stuff). A few slippery rock areas - but nothing crazy. Amazing views for a short hike! Will do again!

There's no sign for the trail. You park at the very end of Gale River Loop Road by the gate. Walk along the trail until it veers off on the right. The trees are marked white. Short, moderate, spectacular views!
