Wow! $7 to get in to park just to hike! No thanks!

this is pretty easy for families with small children and pets . but do beware. we just missed having a family member bit by a Rattle Snake! they are up in wooded section. we were lucky we had small children and a small dog. but it did rattle after the first person walked by so we were able to get by safely! I never would have thought they would be right there. otherwise it was a ok Fast hike.

Pasture like terrain at the bottom with a creek.

Fantastic getaway not far from the valley! We enjoyed hiking, paddle boarding, swimming in the lake, and fishing. The hike is a short 3 mile out-and-back, easy for kids and well maintained. Bathrooms and showers were all very clean. We had a harmless skunk family that would wander through our campsite every evening at dusk. Very peaceful campground and we can’t wait to come back!

Cool trail! Road is dirt and has deep ruts. We went for hike during monsoon season. Drove there in an Impala and were able to get in and out fine. But if it has rained we would have most likely gotten stuck.

great place.

Was out running a few errands with the wife and we just stopped on a whim and “walked” this hike. We weren’t dressed for hiking but you don’t really need to be for this hike. I did just fine in sandals. Great for a young family to go on with younger kids. Most can make the mile walk easily.

Fun easy trail

Good quick hike but poorly marked at times. I kept my GPS on to make it for the full loop. Good views once you get past the trees. But kinda eerie at times alone Will do it again with a friend ☀️

As long as it hasn’t rained in a few days this is a great trail. One of my favorites.

we hiked along the 'creek/reservoir' east from the non hookup spots. found an osprey nest just before u have to turn around for private property. gorgeous cliffs that direction. Rocky, but short. nice for kids.

Not bad...Trail is not well marked and with many intersecting mountain bike trails and roads. Good cell service will allow you to check your position using GPS. Pay attention or you may find yourself on a longer hike than you had planned for!

Did this back in July last year. Super easy. Some decent views. Other trails present which you can go off of including disc golf. Right by White Mtn Rd = lots of car traffic, bring music.

We went in February so it was a bit cold but that was expected. This was an amazing trail with bits of snow patches and a very well marked trail system. We used our GPS quite a bit to make sure we stayed on the trail and that helped. This would be an amazing trail to do in the spring, summer or fall. We will be back.

Well maintained trail and pretty easy. Great trail to bring younger grandkids and also dogs. Very beautiful and much fun along the way if you wanted to stop and throw rocks or just visualize the beauty.

Nice - peaceful, serene walk around the lake. Lots of water birds including a beautiful heron

Love this trail. We even saw a small herd of horses. The mares were interested in our horses but the stallion quickly diverted them.

The first time I tried this trail I was alone and I definitely don't think it's the trail to do alone. it's pretty isolated. This next time I took my mom and we both felt it was pretty eerie. I guess because it is so isolated in back woods and there were bones hanging from trees. the trail markings aren't that great. We found a road halfway in and took that back to the car. overall, wasn't bad.

Saw a herd of elk just off the trail

This was a great trail! It was well marked and maintained, and the trail itself is interesting to follow, with a wide variety of nature and wildlife (including cows). However, be aware that the loop itself is closer to being 13 miles long than it is to being 9 miles.

Beautiful trail full of wildlife, aspen groves and thick dense canopy. We took our Cub Scout den and hiked 6 miles of the loop. It was a great time and was not very difficult.

Not much to see. The meadow is pretty, but you can't escape the highway noise.

This trail was very well marked. I agree it is definitely moderate. Not much wildlife except for a few horn toads. We took the short loop, which took us about 3 1/2 hours. Definitely worth it.

An easy hike for beginners, a kids story book along the way, and disk golf.

Easy-peasy and clearly marked.

Tough but fun hike if you do the full 13 miles.

Trail was poorly marked with other trails/logging roads crisscrossing. Never made the loop as a result but had a long trail run in good weather.

Short on time, did about half the trail. Easy trail, pretty scenery

Beautiful scenery when you get beyond all the forresting.

I thought this was a fun trail. The uphill was a bit challenging but you are rewarded by the long downhills. Not too many technical areas. Beautiful ride.
