Did this trail earlier today. It was pretty easy, and beautiful. However towards the top the trails get narrower, and becomes foot trails. Along the way I heard a bunch of rattles coming from just off the trails, assuming there were rattle snakes. The trail got narrower, and became more bush so decided to play it safe and go back. While turning around my partner saw the rattle part of the snake so stay on the trail especially by the cliffs!

Not shaded. Mainly a horse trail so deeply rutted at times and horse poop, though parts are a wide dirt road. Got a little lost trying to connect the trials so used the AllTrails app for help. Nice views!

Great hike! Slightly overgrown in some areas and kind of got off track a little. Still was a great view and hike though!

Trail is hard to follow at times. Kinda overgrown on the left route. Decent leg burn and nice view.

This trail is excellent if you are seeking a nice workout/hike close to town. It’s one of the safer ones if you plan to hike alone as well. There are a few steep parts and the trail can get narrow up around the cliffs. I wouldn’t recommend bringing children younger than 8. I have ran into a few friendly horseback riders up there as well. I have also heard that during warm weather snakes are around the trail so watch where you step.

Beautiful Trail but not well marked. Beautiful views of snow covered mountains and the Wenatchee valley the higher you go.
