Had a great time going on a short walk/hike here. Nice small pond. It was raining today which is the kind of weather I like and explains why it was muddy. I didn’t know such a nice place was so close to home.

Hiked on Oct 20th. Snow covered, some post-holing. Hiked the whole way with micro spikes, poles would have been helpful. Dang, what a gorgeous trail in the snow!

Great, easy loop trail! You get to see a lot of aspens! Right now is perfect because all the aspen trees leaves were golden yellow. Trail well marked. Just this 1 stretch of it was confusing to follow but it was brief. Maybe 1 vast look out spot where the landscape opened up. The trails view is mostly of a winding path and forest through a ton of aspen trees. The car drive up the mountain to this hiking spot has incredible views of the landscape opening up. Recommended :)

Tricky getting there. Come all the way up past the golf course. Park in the first dirt lot on the right of what feels like a three way branch off at the end of the road, with the probation camp to the left and the equestrian center in the middle. Trail starts behind the sign or walk down the street in the middle toward the equestrian center. Saw a coyote. A few mountain bikers. Inclines and declines. A good easy to moderate loop that took us 45 min. Nice starter that has options for longer if you have the time and energy. Glad I hit record to track my hiking progress as this helped me to follow where I was in real time.

Definitely the easiest portion of the trail if you decide not to go around the pond. Beauty all around.

If you’re driving on the cub creek road, you’re missing out if you don’t take a few minutes to check these out. Amazing petroglyphs, especially a very large one of a lizard that is actually visible from the road. Would recommend for almost anyone.

I absolutely love this trail during the autumn season, especially before the end of the season. It's easy, although currently there is a temporary detour, so that portion of the trail might be slippery and muddy.

Nice & Moderate Trail - toward the end the switchbacks got quite steep and my family kept slipping on the way down, the only thing i’d suggest is not to wear flat shoes. Hahah lovely view from the top, felt like a giant!!! Table Mountain sure was a doosy and a fun one at that!!

very well maintained trail. challenging but very worth the hike. I enjoyed myself immensely:)

Such a good family day trail. We go quite often. Usually you’ll see at least a couple deer or some turkeys wandering around the path. The lake has a pretty bridge and if you go thru the field trail there’s a little creek you can follow. You still get a workout with the hills tho!

Great trail. Very scenic

Beautiful trail. Strenuous for sure but not too hard. Hiked it today took me 3.5 hours. most of the trails currently has snow/ice. No hiking poles and I still did just fine.

Fantastic hike over new terrain thanks to Mount St Helens. Trail well marked from the Observatory. Saw 2 herds of cow elk and 4 bulls chasing them along the ridge. Spectacular views and quite enjoyable.

Hiked 10/18/19. I have it at about 27 miles. There has been some recent trail maintenance to clean up some of the worst sections mentioned in other reviews. Still expect some fallen trees and lots of briars. Glad I brought a small folding saw to do some maintenance of my own - mainly on the briars overhanging the trail. I enjoyed the seclusion that this trail offered and the added difficulty that came with navigating it at times. It is definitely steep in many sections so don’t expect much relief from switchbacks. I spent the night on Tusquitee Bald (space for 1 small tent up top) and found water at the creek (very low flow) a few minutes down Far Spring trail.

Great trail - really really slick coming down the rock side after a rain storm. But it wasn’t terrible, did it with a new puppy and some old vans slip-ons so I probably should have had shoes with a better grip. It was a little humid from all the moisture but it was beautiful to see the overlook at the top of the loop. Would love to do it again, some parts were steep to climb.

Pretty, but packed! We went in August along with everyone else and their dogs. We were lucky to get a parking spot. This is a very easy walk around a lake.

This trial is a great one for a beginner slot canyon. The trail is easy. The slot canyon is a short one but pretty. It only took us about a half hour.

did this in reverse (passaconway, whiteface, trypyramids) great trail and tons of fun, but minimal views on passaconaway and whiteface. the sabbaday brook trail from trypyramids to the parking lot is NOT well marked and has a TON of stream crossings (we crossed the big stream over 10 times) that can be slippery and a bit dangerous at some places. but the first 17 miles were amazing and well-marked!

I’d like to give it 5 stars, but can’t for the following reason. The trail up to the top just wasn’t as beautiful as many others. I enjoy the journey not just the destination, but this trail is all destination. The views at the top are incredible! Be aware of altitude sickness as it is very high altitude. We saw what we thought were bighorn sheep which was cool and then another hiker started approaching them so they were scared off. The hike was fairly short and very steep. I would classify this as hard compared to some of the “hard” hikes I’ve done.

Incredible and diverse loop trail. This was one of my favorites in the state. Using Gaia GPS we logged 7.22 miles. The All Trails App indicates the trail is 6.3 so there is a discrepancy somewhere. I would plan for a lengthy and challenging hike. We hiked in late October with high temps in the 70s and still drank way more water than we thought we would. Bring LOTS of water! Sunscreen is critical as well. Definitely check out the fern cave which is just a minute or two on a spur from the main trail.

Easy trail, kid friendly, beautiful look outs to watch the sunset. Beach was very accessible off of trail. The weather was amazing. great experience

Absolutely loved this hike! It took us around 5 hours going a very comfortable pace with lots of stops for snacks, water, and taking pictures. We did this is in June on an unseasonably cold day and it was perfect! We are attempting it again tomorrow in the October cold and will report back. The views are incredible!

Loud because of highways.
