The view makes it worth it. It’s kind of steep and feels like it takes forever. Once y’all get to the second bench it’s not really a path anymore just following others peoples tracks.

Trail is well maintained, easily identifiable and plenty of bridges. No snow and not terribly muddy. Several fallen trees to hop over. Undergrowth is budding but not overgrown quite yet. Didn’t see any wildlife, but LOTS of fresh bear & moose scat down the entire trail. Be aware, prepared, and stay safe!

5/25/2020 easy trail. I would say 2.5 miles is in the woods and the other 1.5 is in fields. Not the best view but I still enjoyed the hike. My only complaint is that there is SOOO many mosquitos so make sure you use bug repellant

Trail was muddy at points but the snow on the trail was knee deep at points and made finding the trail difficult in the tree line lots of water higher up if your planning on staying in the shelter the wood stove has a hole in the bottom right side and there’s a wasp nest on the smoke stack did the whole trail overnighter beautiful trip highly recommended.

I loved this trail. It was a great workout and with the most rewarding views. I went with my 2 dogs and they did great. My husband and I loved this trail. I can’t wait to get back out here!!

Great ride for the kids to get them to push themselves up the hills. Not to much of a climb but lots of downhills which was awesome.

Beautiful trail. Very very wet right now. Part of the trail is buried in water

Easy short hike with kids, ages 4 and 7 years old. Trail was in perfect condition. The beaver dams were impressive.

Still some snow off the trail. It was rainy and cloudy when we went but still beautiful. Trail was pretty dry for the most part with some muddy patches here and there.

Muddy in some spots, but overall clear. Loved the benches along the west side of the loop. Breathtaking views of the mountains, especially with the majestic clouds surrounding them. Saw one moose along trail and lots of bear poop. Will definitely be coming back soon!

A relatively short jaunt to Cowee Creek Meadows which appears to be part of the Echo Ranch property. I appreciate that Echo Ranch put up a sign inviting fishing along the creek. There is one spot on the trail with a couple of blow downs that requires navigating but on the way back it’s easier if you follow the trail (the way out is tough to notice that stepping past the roots would get you back on the trail). Terrain is mixed rooted and single-track, with quite a few winds. It’s nice that it follows the Creek with spots to step out to fish or enjoy the passing water. There was some black bear sign on the trail, as well as what I believe to be horse scat that could be misconstrued as brown bear sign. I have heard of brown bear in the area, but not seen evidence myself.

Great hike and if you read all the reviews they are pretty spot on. We got to the last hill climb and turned too early. Had to bushwhack down and get through alders. Easier this year because of the huge fire that burned through there last year. But wish we had continued following the Ridgeline up top and found that little marker everybody talks about. Which is definitely further than the 6 1/2 mile mark. Because of the burn there is lots of ash in the area. Super dirty. So only wear stuff that you don’t mind being covered in ash. If it’s raining it would probably be pretty muddy as there’s not a lot of ground cover anymore. Good views and fun ridge run. Good luck connecting the end of the ridge run to Fuller Lakes. Glad we did it in the spring when bushwhacking was easier!

Snow on trail and muddy for sure. Would’ve been a great hike but once it opened up it got very windy and was raining. Then came the sleet. didn’t make it to the end before turning back.
