Beautiful hike. TAKE A PICTURE OF TRAIL MAP. We took a wrong turn and ended up on Bishops lodge. Had to Uber back to our car 5 mi away, which doesn't sound bad, however it sounds horrible when you've already walked 7.5mi that day.

very steep, most of trail very close to sharp drop...the alternative, supposedly more difficult route, is much nicer with a more gradual incline. both paths go to the same location

Gorgeous views, went labor day weekend and did not encounter too many people. Only one dog was on a leash. Stop often to rest and listen to the trees sing in the wind. At the top of the ridge before coming back on the loop, there are other trails to explore. Had lunch at the top. It was nice ending with the meadow; it was all easy down hill to wildflowers, bees, and young aspens.

Beautiful trail although it was too much for my mother and aunt who were in town to visit due to lack of physical ability. I'll be going back though for sure

Has been a favorite for the last 25 years. Just a fun quick hike, but can be much longer by connecting trails. Easy to follow and mostly shady.
