Trail was steep and the closer to the ridge you get, the more difficult it is to follow.

I liked the trail, though I didn’t summit. The forest was dark after crossing the river/ bridge- felt like I was going to have a animal encounter. But didn’t see any animals. Initially, went to the wrong start at grey wolf which was disconnected due to a broken bridge. This start is at slab camp #838, which is correct.

This is an amazing trail to hike. There is tons of wildlife, flowers and even snow in certain spots. You will encounter quite a bit of different terrain so be ready. Highly recommend carrying a weapon or two on this trail(gun, knife) as there are cougars and other potentially dangerous animals. All in all, it's a great hike.

First to Review

Not an easy trail to follow but well worth the effort. There is a stream you will cross that is the only source for water. Depending on the time of year there may be patches of snow as a water source. Custom Correct's Buckhorn Wilderness map does show some of the trail but you are on your own after about 1.5 miles. The views are spectacular!
