Great trail, highly recommend if you are looking for a 2 hour fitness hike. Currently dry and hardly any mud due to no rain. No crowds

Great trail. A little wet. A little horse poop. Most of the mud was available and it was only in a handful of spots. Great afternoon hike.

Lovely dirt trail. Was pretty dry today and stream crossings were easy.

Great hike. First time hiking CVNP and will definitely be back. Good hills with no mud thanks to the dry conditions.

A really great 4 mile loop. Definitely has some hills that will warm you up, but overall relatively even terrain. Mostly shaded with some views of a meadow at points. Still some muddy patches from the Spring, but overall dry trail with 2 river crossings. The streams were low today, but could be higher after heavy rain.

Nice trail that is well maintained and not too muddy right now. Only a few sections of mud but you could easily get around them. Pretty and dense foliage all around but no great breathtaking views. Glad I did it but wouldn’t lose sleep if I skipped it on future trips to the park. Fair amount of horse poop on trail

Wide and covered trail with great elevation changes. Dry in July with low creek crossing and minimal muddy spots.

I didn’t run wetmore. It ran me! Great trail with a few tough climbs. The cool part is that this trail is totally different depending on weather. A middle mile is super flat and awesome. The rest will test you! Some switchbacks and, of course, expect a tough climb after stream crossings because those are the low points. Took me 1:14 to jog it so if you are hiking I would guess a fast hike would be completed in 1:30 but a stroll will take over 2 hours.

relatively flat trail with intermittent steep inclines. hikers share the trail with horses, so there are numerous wallows that remain wet most of the year and hikers must navigate around them or be willing to get quite muddy.

Trail was very well maintained. Little horse poop and mud is mostly dry. There is a large fallen tree however about two miles in which is difficult to navigate but other than that a great hike!

Mud has definitely dried out for the most part. Creek crossings were very navigable. Still quite a bit of horse poop though! No wildflowers blooming. Nice sunrise hike this morning.

This was a tough one! Since it’s a bridle trail, there is a lot of elevation with muddy rocks. I had to find ways to cross the river about three times - one involved walking over a tree like a balance beam. It’s a good workout though! There is plenty of shade so you aren’t too exposed to the sun. I would highly recommend hiking boots or waterproof shoes. There is no way to avoid the mud and water crossings. It took me just under two hours to do the whole loop.

Prepare to exert yourself. Trail has high elevation, almost 2000ft, very muddy at times so wear good waterproof shoes. 5 mile hike, takes about 2.5 hours

Good trail if you love hiking and nature. There is A LOT of mud and good inclines/declines! I don’t think this is heavily trafficked as I have been here 3x so far, and don’t see many people. I hike with my wiener dog and felt bad that she had to deal w horse poop- there is quite a bit! (Not complaining, it isn’t hard to walk around) Do this trail when it has been sunny/dry for a few days!
