HikingGreat!

Insanely beautiful trail. Follow the gps because the turn off is sneaky. Tons of people on the main trail but 0 on the rim trail. It’s easy enough and the view at the top is superb. Bring a sandwich and a beer...toast to my fellow hikers

HikingGreat!

The view at the end of this trail was one of the most gorgeous I have ever seen. Well worth it! The blow down that has been mentioned in the comments seemed to be cleared up. The only suggestion would be to download the map from AllTrails because it is a bit confusing when the sacred time trail splits off of pole creek trail. There is a cairn but a fallen tree is blocking the ability to see it. Since we had the map on our phone we saw exactly where to go.

This trail is really cool and beautiful. The view at the top is great. I would say it’s more moderate than easy though. There were still lots of fallen trees when I went 10/10/2020 so you had to go around or climb over them, you end up off the trail a few times but it’s easy to get back. This is also unmarked and took me a bit to find the trailhead. You go on pole creek trail and then walk til you go over the rock bridge and then walk a minute longer and there’s a little trail to the left that is marked with stacked rocks on small boulders. I walked right past, along with several other people I ran into that day. Once you do see it though you’ll be like “oh! yep that’s definitely it. “

Trail is awesome! The end is so beautiful! Lots of trees down, the turn off for the trail is a bit hard to find, keep left off of main trial. No signs for the trail, two rocks will split the trail after the man made lift rocks trail for drainage purposes, there are two small rocks splitting the trail, keep left.

This is a pretty easy hike with phenomenal views at the end. Some inclines and fallen trees blocking the path, but they are easy to get around. The trail is NOT marked at the trailhead of the parking lot, you have to take Pole Creek Trail and go past the rock bridge. There’s a boulder to the left just down the trail and you’ll see a smaller trail split off from there. That leads to Sacred Rim. Overall hike for us was 3.6 miles to the rim.

Absolutely beautiful trail! The journey itself was stunning and the views at the end were incredible. We were the only ones on the trail on a Saturday. I recommend downloading the trail map so you don’t get lost. People out and about mentioned fallen trees causing hikes to take much longer than normal but this trail was fine.

Recent wind damage has brought down a lot of trees in the area. Cleanup is in progress. Still manageable, but a couple obstacles in a few places. Otherwise pretty easy hike. Viewpoint at the end is definitely worth the trip!

Beautiful forested hike leading to absolutely spectacular rim views! We started at around 8am & didn’t see another hiker until we got back to the trailhead. Gorgeous!

Beautiful views, but way too crowded. Too many people have discovered it. Maybe off-season would be better.

Great acclimation hike. Read other reviews for trail description. Hardly any bugs, go early to get a parking spot and avoid the crowds. We only saw 2 people in the way up but quite a few on way down.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful hike that was just about 4.2 miles out and back by starting to the left on Pole Creek Trail. Trail is not marked but easily found about 0.3 miles in, just past the man-made rock-way that was built due to bad drainage. You will see it to the left and a Boulder in the center between it and the Pole Creek Trail. Two creek crossings for the pups and phenomenal views at the top. Some jerk was sitting atop the very top outcropping that has the best views and photo opportunity- he was scratching g the range- which is cool, but at least offer to step off for a few minutes while people get a photo. Not busy on a Wednesday afternoon.

Thanks to the advice of the lady at the visitors center we took a left off of Pole Creek trail. This trail isn’t marked and to be honest we got lucky when we found it but we were so glad that we did! It’s easy enough but the altitude makes it a little rough when you aren’t used to it and we aren’t. You don’t want to stop and rest for too long though because the mosquitos will carry you away. I would highly recommend taking this trail if you have the chance, abundant wild flowers and the pay off at the end is absolutely incredible!!

By far one of the best ways to begin hiking in this area, keeping the hike to about a mile and 3/4 one way for an exceptionally rewarding view. This was my second hike in this location and I wish it had been the first. Most of the way out is moderate incline with a few sections of trail that get steep for a short period of time. There’s a tiny brook to cross a few times, a beautiful medow about 2/3 of the way out, bunches of wild flowers, wonderful smells! The view at the end is magnificent. Remember though, if you’re new to hiking, go with friends, take your time, stay hydrated, bring a snack. The altitude alone, if your not used to it, can wipe you out. But this trail is an excellent place to start! Oh yes, use and bring bug spray. And a camera

Wonderful hike. The wild flowers, stream crossing and view at the end makes this a gem! It is the first unmarked trail to your left after starting on pole creek trail.

This was a great hike through the forest with a rewarding view at the trails end. Lovely meadows, wild flowers and a creek added to the trip. Watch close for the fork off of the Pole Creek Trail. There is a fair sized rock on the center left. We saw only two folks on our way back down. We prepared for bugs but met few.

Amazing views at the end. Can’t stress enough the need for bug spray. Even under your clothing. The mosquitos are intense during certain portions of this trail. We brought head nets as well and used them.

This hike was very scenic and beautiful. I took my 9 and 11 year old and they had no troubles with the hike. Once you get to the top, the view is amazing! Bring bug spray!

Wonderful trail, with a breathtaking view at the top! We completed this with a small group of family, including a 7 and a 3 year old. The trail was clear and easy enough for the 7 year old not to need nay help and the 3 year old to only need carrying part of the way back. A couple steep-ish hill but that’s it, and well worth the view. We had lunch at the top, which was a great idea. For those of us afraid of highly we were a little uneasy in places at the top rest/lookout point but overall well well worth it. Make sure to use bug-spray as there are bugs but they aren’t too terrible
