HikingGreat!Private property

Trail was great! It was a bit narrow all the way up and down, so a bit of stepping off to let others through. Also it appears to be on private property so be mindful of where you park! Trail was gorgeous, switchbacks are very rewarding. All in all a great fun quick hike with rewarding views throughout!

HikingGreat!Private propertyScramble

4/9 Beautiful views along the way to the top. As others have mentioned the trail begins on private property and parking allows for maybe 5-cars. Trail is narrow for the most part, at times one foot in front of the other. The wild flowers are blooming beautifully. There is a small section where you have to scramble but is easily doable.

BackpackingGreat!

The trail is great! Not too hard but a good incline. Was going to hike it today but it’s closed. Wouldn’t have drove out there if I knew that. Kinda sad, but excited to hike it in the spring!

One of my favorite hikes that are near Wenatchee. Nice views, decent elevation gain but not super technical. Open until 14th of October.

Gorgeous, gorgeous! First ones at the trailhead at 8 am on a Saturday morning. Steady incline all the way up with a sweet view at the top. Rained the day before so the trail was damp but not at all muddy. Very narrow trail so watch your step! Be sure to sign the guest book at the top!

Fun trail! Love the incline. The single track makes you concentrate a little more. Overall, the views are amazing. Love it!

RunningGreat!Private propertyScramble

Really fun single track trail. Went early on a Tuesday and only saw 1 other person. Can be pretty slippery and I took a fall running back down. Great views and I enjoyed the steep mixed with rolling trails. I love trails with views from multiple angles and this has them in spades.

HikingPrivate property

This is my favorite hike in the late spring(late May) because of variety of flowers and it’s aroma. Make sure you have enough water. There are steep parts, especially at the end. Views are rewarding. When you arrive you park and start off private property, consider donating some cash to owner who allows people to use his property. There is no restroom at this hike.

We tried going there today (06/24) but there was a big sign that said “no trail access” blocking the road. Disappointed.

The driving instructions take you a little too far. You’ll see a pond and the space around it is the parking lot. The trail is marked with a sign (and a nice little lost and found table) Awesome hike! Quite narrow. Pretty steady uphill all the way in. At the last .2 miles you hit a road where you’ll have climb up some rocks to continue (right in front of you but unmarked).

Its a very narrow trail. It is also very popular. We were the first ones on the trail and still had plenty of run ins; mostly on the way down. There isnt much space to step aside. Once you get to the dirt road, that isnt the top, there isnt signage, but look straight across and you have to climb to the other part of the trail (you might think to yourself, “am i here?” “Is that the trail? That cant be the trail.)”The views are essentially the same from the dirt road to the top of the trail, but you can sign your name in the book if you go all the way and then you can say you did it! Great views but there are better.

Great but narrow trail in places, good history there if you take a moment to talk with Leonard who mans the parking lot!
