Very nice trail. Easy to do with a toddler carrier because incline is very gradual. I rarely need bug spray in the Black Hills but would have liked it on this trail.

Trail is every bit of 2.5 miles. Trail is single lane most of the way. Definitely for hiking in a line one by one. For my dog to walk beside me he frequently had to walk in the grass as the trail wasnt wide enough for both of us. All in all we enjoyed the hike though. And it is a back door way of hiking to Harney Peak.

Love this trail because it's a loop! Super easy trail to follow, love the stream that goes through it, there's kind of a tiny hidden waterfall, lots of big boulders, which my kids love to run up on! Great views of harney peak! Definitely recommend this trail, especially if you're looking for something that isn't too strenuous.

Was great, and the path was cleared of fallen trees!

It was a nice little trail overall, just had a few fallen trees across the walkway.

Nice hike with my wife and one year old son. Just a lot of downed trees which made it difficult with kid carrier. But worth it.
