Took our 7 month old out in the backpack carrier for her first hike today on this trail! It was muddy and slippery, which is to be expected at this time of year. Overall a great hike! We all enjoyed it and will go again!

Pretty good trail. I think someone switch some signs around for fun. We went up a difficult trail by following signs but the "easy" path was pointing toward the difficult path. Honestly the area was beautiful when I looked around but I had to focus on not twisting my ankle on the loose rocky path of the difficult trail. The path would probably been pretty good for someone who was a bit more used to hiking, I just started. Kinda proud of myself for being able to do it though. What made it worth it was the view wow it was gorgeous at the top of buzzards roost!

My dog & I enjoy this trail. Not too far from RC. Great view over looking Hiselga.

Fun quick trail. If you do this one, you have to make sure you go all the way to the top. The view is great. I almost made the wrong turn and missed the short leg to the top. Fun hike and even better for mountain biking. The switchbacks on the way down are the perfect difficulty for my fairly novice skill level.
