Lovely trail with some awesome views! Not well marked but we just make sure we remembered where we came from and enjoyed the fall colors.

Trails not marked well and we got lost ended up walking 11.5 miles . Too many unmarked forks in the road. Loops within loops confused us. We’ve done many hikes no problems . Maybe someone messed with the signs .

Nice nice Trail very Scenic and pretty I think it's well-marked but I believe it is an out-and-back and not a loop.

Awesome hike! The wild flowers were out, and the views were gorgeous. While it starts with an uphill, it is pretty easy with a long switchback. Once you make the ridge, it is nice and rolly with meadows and forests. Great for anyone!

Great trail with a good mix of scenery and incline! Good for hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding

A fairly easy, family friendly hike. We hiked in and did a loop with another trail. We found a nice clearing and camped overnight. Easy to find trail head and a well marked trail.

The Headquarters Trail is a nice easy trail. Everyone from your little ones to grand parents can enjoy. Take a lunch, get out of town for a bit, stretch your legs then head home. It is a nice little hike. It is also a nice place to introduce newcomers to the area. Their first small hike. This is not a loop. This trail is not well marked.
