This was a fun trail with some challenging rock scrambles (for the kids 6 & 8). A previous review recommended starting counter clockwise, and I thought it was great advice. We will definitely come back here again.

We went off the trail we chose for a longer trip. Overall really nice hike. Very moderate.

We went for a quick hike here and loved it. Trail is a bit rocky so keep that in mind. Make sure you carry some bug spray. We went with our toddler and had a hiking backpack so carried her on our back but it’s not easy for toddlers to walk on. 4 years and above should be ok. Highly recommend.

Went on a Monday afternoon, and it was wonderful! Counterclockwise is definitely the way to go, and you get to walk along the river towards the end, which makes for a nice cool-down. The views were great as well! The whole hike took me (22), my sister (17), and my mother (52) just about three hours, but we stopped often and spent a good amount of time at the top of the mountain. Would recommend this loop!!

Definitely bring the bug spray. Grippy hiking shoes are a good idea for the rock scramble. Counter-clockwise was the right move. Quiet hike with not too many people.

I found this trail pretty challenging. Lots of rocks and boulders to climb! Ended up going off trail a bit so we hiked a bit further. Mostly shaded which is nice on a hot summers day!

As a beginner, this trail was not too shabby. There were a couple of steep hills, but it was completely doable. The views were amazing! The rock scramble scared me at first, but it was not as bad as it seemed. Having my best friends there, my dogs Rico and Milo, made all so much better!

Really fun trail for a Sunday hike! Took the suggestions of others - definitely go counter-clockwise! Some of the rocky climbs would have been much more difficult going down. Passed few people until we got toward the end, where there were much more.

After following the suggestions of previous hikers, my friend and I hiked the trail in the reverse direction, blue to the top, right on orange, just to the scenic overlooks, then backtracked to the blue, took it across the top of the Torne, to the white trail, and back down to the Reeves Meadow information center. It was wonderful! I'm not in the greatest shape so if you are it probably won't take you the 5 hours it took us, with breaks. There's very little water in the stream, so don't go for that...

Trail well marked. Pretty streams and woods with cute little bridges over the stream Very relaxing would do it again. Pretty view from the peak. Highly recommend it

One of the patches is too thought to climb down or up with a kid. But otherwise a great hike. The hike is 6.5 mile. Not 3.5.

Beautiful trail! I loved it. Very quiet and peaceful. A combination of gorgeous views, shady streams, little waterfalls and rushing river. Went counter clockwise and most of the trail was rocky but fairly easy except for one very steep rock scramble up. Would definitely suggest going counter clockwise on this loop.
