Excellent snow-filled hike today. Access road was closed so parked near round-about and walked up. Added about 45min to the round trip. Crampons/micro spikes would help but aren’t absolutely necessary. Beautiful views and barely anyone in the trail!

Pretty well marked except the minty green blaze blends with the lichen on the tree bark!

Wet! Went clockwise. Good climbs, nice views, good diversity. Not too hard to stay on trail but you have to pay attention as there are a lot of other trails intersecting.

Cool hiking on large rock slabs with great views all around. Many nice spots to stop for a snack. Hike difficulty is moderate. There are some ups and downs but nothing too strenuous. Highly recommend the hike.

Crowded parking but didn’t notice too many on the trail. I guess people were spread out. Short climb up to ridge then its a nice walk along the top of the ridge to hodgencamp

Hiking

I took a short cut about half way thru. It didn't cut off that much time, I just felt like going down a different trail. I highly highly highly recommend this trail in the middle of fall. It was truly otherworldly. It felt like another planet. The combination of using giant rocks as paths paired with low growth red/orange vegetation and big yellow/orange trees, with the backdrop of mountains... was just breathtaking. The start/end of the trail is steep but not that difficult really. The rest is pretty easy ups and downs, lots of flat parts too once you're up there. There are free camping spots a couple miles in that are clearly visible, including a shelter. Beware of bears, there are a few signs warning of them in the area. I didn't see any animals at all really on my trip though. It was also pretty lightly trafficked with only a few groups spotted (9am-1pm on a Thursday in October). GET OUTSIDE!!

HikingGreat!

Great Hike! This trail offered a great variety of terrain that kept the hike interesting and fun! A steep ascent at the start leads to an eventual great view at the top of Surebridge Mountain. Hike wasn't overly crowded (went on a Saturday AM but got there early around 9:30). Parking is somewhat limited but you can park on the side of the road as needed. Trail rating is accurate at moderate.

I’d call this a moderate hike. You need good shoes and plenty of water. We had snake and deer sighting. It’s a beautiful hike with a consistent amount of climb throughout the trail. Get there early on a weekend to find parking

Super easy hike. One nice view point towards the beginning looking west/southwest. My watch clocked 6.5 miles for the hike. Lots and lots of blueberries right now!
