From US 2 highway intersection to Peshastin take Main Street. Main street becomes North Road as you leave the town. Past the winery and before the cemetery turn right into Anderson Canyon Road. Drive 0.7 mile to the trailhead. The trailhead is on the left. Trail is closed seasonally: October-April.

A dry hot hike in the summer with a lot of full sun. I recommend doing it on a mild temperature day. Pretty steep and narrow at the beginning.

Hard trail with beautiful views along the way and an astounding Panorama at the summit! Some switch backs but mostly up hill trekking. Hiking boots recommended and saw a lot of hiking poles being used as well.

Trail was slightly confusing at points but everything split off simply leads in a circle to the main trail. Also the beginning of the trail is in a fine Gentleman's yard who sells delicious, home made red wine. Try it!

This was a bit more than moderate. Hiking boots are best! It is 6 miles round trip and 3100ft. Better to do in the morning not mid day sun.

Beautiful hike with the wild flowers. Wear good boots or hiking shoes with grip. No running shoes for the decline. Older gentlemen who built the trail 28 years ago is at the bottom selling good white wine. Told us it took him 3 years to build by himself. Beautiful sights of the enchantments. A little narrow in spots with a hard drop... so be mindful. The trail is also uphill for a majority so if you aren't in good shape, you might want to take your time. Can't wait to go back in a couple weeks!

Gorgeous views. Views all the way up, not just at top.

Fun family-friendly trail. Pretty wild flowers throughout. Very pastoral. Mostly open and exposed so bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

Amazing wild flowers now. Yellow bantams in full bloom everywhere. Quite a sight to see! Purple lupine just beginning. Blue bells at higher elevation. Recommend the left turn at fork to see best views south and west of Leavenworth, valley, and enchantments in distance. Very steep at some points, especially top. Was dry with loose gravel Wednesday 5/3, feet slipped some. We took north east loop back, much easier and better on 51-year old knees for descent. Love love loved hiking this. Plenty of shade for water and snack breaks. Highly recommend.

Hiked out here yesterday with friends, it sure was a beautiful day for it. I was disappointed that the wildflowers weren't in full bloom so my friends could see how beautiful it can be. I'd give it 2/2 1/2 weeks and they should be in full bloom. I'm glad we got there early, we past many people on our way back down and there must have been at least 20 cars at the trailhead.

Nice trail! Heavily used. Will return on weekdays for the wildflowers and views.

So, this is steep and the trail is narrow...with some areas that have drop offs. If you are afraid of heights, hike with extreme caution. Beautiful views of Leavenworth and the Enchantments.

It was a beautiful day. Great weather . It is quite a hike if you aren't expecting the climb. But we totally enjoyed it and would do it again!

Lovely trail. Wildflower were in abundance, and very fragrant. Met Mr. Sauer himself back at the parking lot. Very friendly and knowledgable fellow. Lots of energy for an 86 year old! Trail was not too busy, but we were there on a Friday just before 9:00 am. Took the main trail, and got to the top in about 1 hr and 5 min. Very similar time coming back down, as there are some sandy sections.

Beautiful trail all the way to the top. This trail doesn't lack at all on the wildflowers. My friend and I were out there on May 6th, we saw Marmots, deer, salamandars, chipmunks, butterflies, and a woodpecker. The trail is beautifully maintained, but is very narrow, if your afraid of heights this might not be the trail for you. There isn't much shelter from the sun so you may want to pack sunscreen, and sunglasses, and bring extra water. I thought it was an easy trail, if your not use to a lot of elevation or don't like elevation, this could be moderate to strenuous for you.
