Hiked 7/15/18. The trail was a little confusing. When you get to the point where you have to go left or right and it looks like right is washed out, go right - you can see the trail continue just beyond the trees. Views were okay, but don't think I'd do this one again.

Great trail and an easy hike. Some places there are splits that aren't marker with any signs so make sure you use GPS. View was worth it. also the trailhead right at the end of the bridge isnt marked super well. GPS was extremely useful for this hike !

Great hike! A little hard to find the trail in a few spots, but following past hiker’s tracks helped. Nice route to Dirty Harry’s Balcony.

5/29/2018 (Tuesday) -- This should be currently taken as the only trail leading to Dirty Harry's Balcony. The other previously "official" trail seems closed permanently. This trail is much more interesting than the old one. It seems being built in different periods, some sections look older, others newer, neatly laid with rocks. Yet, the starting point of this trail at the end of the bridge is not clearly marked, so it seems this trail has not been officially completed and opened. Numerous switchbacks grade the route up to 1.5 miles, then the opening shows the view of the I-90 corridor in both directions, and mountains on the opposing side of I-90. This trail is used very lightly.

Had a beautiful view from Dirty Harry's Balcony off of this trail today. I was enjoying myself so much I decided to try for the peak. There was still a bit too much snow for me to make it today, but it was a beautiful trail.

The trail brings great views but it is kind of hard to see since there are a lot of roots
