Great trail. Stretch at the end was a relentless uphill climb.

HikingGreat!

Been doing this trail for the last week and haven’t seen a soul. Nice trail with a gradual climb for the most part, but it can get steep in some sections. Not too many hikes make me sweat and this one had me taking a couple breaks to catch my breath/drink some water. Technically I think the trail ends at the BLM boundary. I went further, but don’t think it’s necessary. Fall colors will be a lot better inside the canyon as opposed to the top of the trail, which is in private property so don’t be like me and just turn around at the boundary. Clocked 4.45 miles in 1.25 hrs

Not a hard trail. Moderate. Narrow with some big trees down across the trail currently. Nice easy 6-7 miles if you do both trails and the loop. No real vista but trail is mostly shaded which was nice.

Beautiful trail - enchanted is the perfect word. Shady and as described by prior reviews. I went a little before dusk and saw a bear about 100 feet away, so you may want to bring bear spray just in case.

The trail forks into Enchanted Forest, which is the steeper trail with a view of the ravine, and Felton, which is significantly more moderate with peekaboo views into Applegate Valley. Both trails have great shade, and I saw abundant California Tortoiseshell and California Sister butterflies on 8/27/20. Both trails combined and back total around 7 miles door to (same) door. Worth it.

Nice moderate hike with lots of poison oak and limited views overlooking the Applegate Valley.

We LOVED it. The up and down landscape. The hills. The peek-a-boo views of the gorgeous landscape. Lots of wildlife- even ran into a skunk! Can’t wait to return. Completed with my 5 and 8 year old.

Almost the entire thing is shaded. Lots of wild life: saw a buck, lots of birds, lizards and cicadas. Tons of poison oak but the trail is well maintained. It’s and in and out trail. Mile 1.5-2.5 is brutal. Very steep. But with lots of breaks my 8 and 5 year old managed it with us. We really enjoyed the scenery. The top of the trail switched to private property so we turned around. Not much of a view from that spot. But still totally worth it.

Beautiful old growth forest. Lush and green (mid May). Kids can do it.

Hiked May 3rd No bathroom Very limited parking Moderate traffic No noise pollution (except hikers) A trail that takes you through deer brush and a few open grass areas, into a forest trail that climbs steeply up. This trail is best for those looking to get in some exersize. It offers shaded forest, a tiny creek for only a brief portion of the hike, and limited views on trail. The trail gradually climbs up the ridge with a small loop trail in the beginning, a side trail marked about a third the way up, and a few different options for the top of the ridge. The trail becomes very steep the last third or so of the trail. As you reach the top of the ridge the trail has three options; left, straight, or right. -left, has no views and is short, offering an easier peak option and lunch spot. -middle, down hill trail that leads to signs saying private property. -right, this takes you to the highest point, and is very steep, ending at a flat large intersection of three gravel roads. The right portion is the best, if you can handle the steep trail. For the greatest views, as you reach the flat intersection, follow a tiny trail up the hill to your left. Views of the whole valley can be seen but the path has poison oak and is not well maintained.

This is a great hike! You follow along a creek for the first part and there is a lot of green. It stays a steady incline, and gets steeper as you near the end. This trail eventually goes on to private property, but this is clearly marked, nevertheless most people continue on. Definitely worth a trip, it’s enchanting just as the name implies.

It was a beautiful day for a hike. The wildflowers are just starting to bloom. we saw some wild strawberries and some vines that look like some sort of squash. Pretty random place for it. Its mostly in the shade after the split to the Felton Memorial trail. The steep section at the end it pretty narrow. Be cautious when passing other hikers, there is poison oak. There were several cars, but we only passed a few people on the trail.

Absolutely beautiful! The name fits it perfectly, a great experience for sure. I can understand why it’s rated hard because like others said there’s a gradual steep uphill climb and one really intense hill at the end, but it has you going the whole time pretty much! There’s one really good long distance view in the middle of that crazy steep hill and a little long distance view once you make it to the top. Not too many people there, saw two people on my way in and maybe 7 or 8 in pairs or so but far distances between on the way down. Hard work but worth it and just a beautiful place!

You can see why it’s called enchanted! Beautiful trail with a variety of scenery. There is a little creek halfway through if your dog needs water and you forgot to bring it. Doesn’t get hard until 3/4 way to the top. Slow incline the whole way tho. Poison oak in the last section. Some ticks if your dog goes off trail. So worth it!

I loved how difficult the trail was, but there wasn’t much of anything special. If you get to the top, do the switchback up to the right. The views are way better. A few downed trees or washed out paths. A bit rocky towards the top. Also, the horse loop at the end had a pretty view. Good workout hike!

Nice walk through the forest, beautiful in the fall with lots of big leaves. The last quarter mile or so gets steep. A little surprised there didn’t seem to be more of an overlook at the top, just one little spot.
