Loved it. Been a few years for me, but my family does this trail at least once every year when they go up to their house there. Super green and lush and you quickly forget you're surrounded by deserts.

This trail was challenging and beautiful. Heavy pine cover for most of the hike - it follows up and crosses over a creek many times. Although we didn't get our feet wet we did get a bit muddy. There is an Aspen grove, meadows and steep climb as you get to the upper part of the trail. We got caught in a thunder storm and had to fend off mosquitoes near the top. Bring plenty of water and be prepared for storms and change of temperature. Because of the change in the weather we descended the same trail but we would have liked to try one of the other trails. This is one of the most beautiful hikes we've ever done.
