Not much for “vistas”, but it was a cool and shady trail for a run. The trail is not well used, making the footing dicey on the steeps. A nice diversion from pavement

This trail has some nice views of emerald lake and great forest walking. I liked it for a quick trail run but You can hear and see the road at the vista points. It takes about an hour.

Nice little hour or so hike. We were at Emerald Lake camping, so it was a nice afternoon relaxing hike.

Great scenic trail from the emerald lake state park. Did it with my autistic 14 year old, he did great! So I would def recommend the trail for people with older children. This is a trail with moderate challenges along the way.
