Had fun 4 wheeling on the way to the trailhead. I loved this hike. If you're looking for wildflowers, this is the hike to go on. The panoramic view is awesome.

We Hiked in mid July, The Road that takes you up to Ed'strail is very very bad , you need a jeep and motor bike or a all terains 4 weels drive.. Crevasses and hols are every where.. I almost turned around a few times.. But we made it. I arrived at the trail hade with 4 teenagers. the hike is moderate.. I was the only one breathing hard walking up. the weather was amazing, not too cold not to warm.. Flowers where in bloom in the all valley, it was splendid. It felt like we where walking in a Garden or a giant bouquet. The view on the montain summit was absolutly breath taking all around.. Among the top10 best views i have seen in my life.. and i am a world traveler.. the scary drive up was well payed off. I will be back.

If you don't care for heights, this is not a hike for you. Be prepared to climb a few rocks. The views are breathtaking. Ed's trail is a nice route on your way to Silver Star. Go early and plan to relax, have lunch and soak in the view. We were even blessed with the pleasure of a Mountain Goat.This is my second time and it will not be the last!

Liked this trail better than Silver Star. I went up Ed's and then back down Silver Star and Ed's trail wins. Like the rock archway and climbing on rocks. Great trail.
