Good short trail out of town. I wore my 5-months old baby and I hiked with my over 70yo dad. Easy hike. It can be snowy at winter.

I hiked this trail without the map. I started from the campground and ended up going off trail and going for the Ridgeline peaking at the top of one of the open peaks. Gorgeous views and the cool weather and some snow still left in the ground for March was an added bonus. the basic trail is goid, but if you feel adventurous, go fir the top.. it's well worth it.

Easy hike with the kids. Lots of shade and easy walking. Doesn't matter which way you go on the loop its uphill till you loop back.

This is a worthwhile little hike. It is easy for kids. You must hike through the Black Canyon Campground before reaching the trail.

this was an easy day hike. It begins behind campsite #24, and loops up the hill and through the woods. I went during the government shutdown, so the campsite was closed and bathrooms were closed. It was a peaceful hike.
