This was a great hike. Moderately difficult. Quite a challenge for my four year old son with points of steady rise and Boulder strewn terrain. Only moderately difficult for my six and eight year sons, & wife who is 32 weeks pregnant. The cold ice beds were very neat, and the stunning Vista views just off trail were gorgeous.

I saw someone's review that said there is not much of a view. I think that person may have missed the left-hand turn to view the vista about .3 miles up. This is a stunning area. Especially fantastic if you can spend some time at the boulder cliff by yourself and be amazed. I didn't venture further as it looked pretty steep to go down after the vista, so I turned around. Still worth it.

Hiked this trail after first completing the trip up to White Rocks. Had fun climbing up the ice bed

Good, pretty steep hike. No real views but the cool air coming off the giant rock ice beds at the end was fun.

A nice view fairly early in the trail and the ice beds at the end. You will have to watch for the blazes on the trees to follow the trail since the path on the ground is not always visible. The trail is fairly easy with only a few places that are of moderate difficulty.

Good hike as a skiing alternative. well marked trail with great views. Go to the ice beds too. Make sure your boots are water resistant.

Great early winter hike, not to difficult on the down hill in small amounts of snow.

There are some overlooks with nice views of the mountain. The ice beds are at the end of the trail, and you can feel a cold draft coming out through June. If you keep going just past the end of the trail, there is a mountainside of quartz boulders that makes for excellent rock hopping.
