A little icy when I went April 21. Would've been easier with crampons but still doable in tennis shoes.

Great quick trail with gorgeous views the trail was perfect and dry, my dog loved it!!!

Slushy below treeline as of 4/21. Northern trail to peak still has spotty snow, but looks to be clearing soon. beautiful vistas and terrain to explore at peak; unfortunately you can still hear traffic from the top. Blacktails still covered in snow.

Short but steep hike! We enjoyed scrambling up the rocks and the kids loved sliding down the dirt chutes on the way down.

Beautiful short trail to do wi the family.

Easy wide trail for hiking and biking

Really easy hike with the family to stretch out legs. The flowers were in blooms and we even saw a grizzly in the distance!

My family and I hiked this trail last year with friends of ours. There was lots of vegetation and easy to get that "get lost in the woods" feel. We enjoyed Geocaching along the way and the view along the trail.

We absolutely love the Eagle River nature center trails. They are a great way to stretch your legs for a couple hours!

We absolutely love the Eagle River nature center trails. It is a great way to go street hunting your legs for a couple hours!

Family and I decided to hike this trail on a whim one Saturday. We brought the dogs on a leash and enjoyed the climb and especially the views!

This was a very enjoyable backpacking trip with a group of ladies! Timing the beach walk is the key. You have to hit the tide just right so you are not stuck up against the rocky cliffs. We hiked out to the first camp corundum and stayed the night there. The next morning we climbed up to the old fort and down the other side to the beach on the other side. That beach was magical! While sitting on the beach and resting our legs we were treated to whales breaching and playing in the water right in front of us! We completed the loop (and getting lost at some point where the trail was grown over) and went back to camp for the night. The next day we timed the tides and hiked back. I would definitely do this hike again!

This hike was challenging and rewarding. The evelvation gain was no joke and it definitely felt like more than 2.5 miles to the top. The views from the summit are spectacular and well worth the climb. Going down the trail was rough on my knees with very little switchbacks. You go down the same steep trail you ascended on. Bring water and energizing food to complete this challenging hike!
