Great hike! Very easy, and you pass several spots where you can enjoy soaking in the water or tanning in the sun. Make sure to stay hydrated!

Walk from spyglass to twin falls with a puppy. Follow the trail or you will veer off track a bit prior to 360 after crossing the stream.

Great trail, markings are a little confusing, but isn't that the fun part. Did 11.42 miles and started to cramp up about 10.5 but made it. Oh and don't park by toy's r us, that hill is a killer.

I visited this trail for the first time in April 2017. The parking was difficult but so worth the headache. The trail is beautiful and some areas are flat, so are rocky and some are very rocky. It was my first ever hike and I was able to go for 7.5 miles. Lots of dogs off their leash but very friendly. I loved stopping and watching the climbers too. I already can't wait to go back.
