Beautiful views. Go right for an easier hike. Left is a lot steeper up. Memorial at rhe top for the 19 firefighters/ Hotshots that died in 2013.

Beautiful scenery. Follow the white dots or easy to get off trail. Took us 3 hours to complete. I would rate this as moderate due to lots of climbing up rocks with very little flat sections.

I followed the directions here and had a hard time finding Mint Creek Trail. his sounds like a grrat hike but I am still not sure where it starts.

Loves this trail!! Beautiful scenic views and fairly smooth. Some spots are a little rough, but the lake view makes it all worthwhile!

Secluded and quiet with beautiful Mountain Views. I️ wouldn’t recommend for children under 5’ because they will get whacked in the face with branches the whole time. Long sleeves are recommended. Need a high clearance vehicle to get to the trail. We passed one jeep coming out to the trail and he said the road was rougher than it used to be. Didn’t see anyone else on the road oor on the trail. :) lots of animal prints but no wildlife spotted. Felt safe with a pistol just in case :-D

Loved this hike! I was a bit nervous going into it with a weaker left knee, and this being my first hike but all went well. There were some small beginner scrambling areas and some areas where you do some rock climbing, but all of it was so worth it for the beautiful scenery. I would definitely recommend this hike, it was lots of fun and the sights are worth all the work you put into it.

Loved this trail! There are some tough spots and small climbs/scrambles, but nothing terribly difficult to handle. We went very early in the morning and spent about 5 hours hiking around the lake and taking in all the amazing scenery.
