Great trip. Going over black rock pass is challenging but completely worth the effort to get to little five lakes on the other side.

Celebrated my BF birthday with this trail. Fun & Amazing beauty.

Nice family hike, including our dog. Would likely do it again.

I wouldn't say this hike was a "difficult" rated hike at all. done many 14ers and this was just a mellow uphill. we hiked a total of 12 miles up the dripping springs trail, after you pass the first mountain, the climate changes into a rain forest type of environment and it's extremely beautiful and rewarding with panoramic views. Looking forward to hike it again in the spring when all the flowers are blooming

Definitely a shorter hike, but still worth wild. The view at the end was incredible.

Relatively easy trail with some nice scenery once you get about halfway. Have not gone in the winter, although I may go soon just to experience it. Overall, nice little hike, some gain, a few spots with dodgey footing. Once you get to the switchback portion, you’re almost there, so keep on going! You can connect with the PCT if you go right once you get to the “peak.” I highly recommend doing that.

Beautiful surroundings. Easy trail. Good for jugging. I wouldn’t categorize it as difficult. Very easy. Climate change was awesome.

This is a great hiking trail around the Visitor Center. Don't forget to check out the Grinding Rocks trail off this trail - beautiful layers of rocks along a stream of water. Easy hike & fun!

it was a very good trail we started out at the visitor center and Wrightwood and hiked all the way down to Jackson Lake, so coming back was all uphill but that was a good hike

I am not a poet. Words cannot describe how humbling gods work is. Over every peak, the trail gets more beautiful.

The forest is lush and the newts are frolicking! There are currently (January) a dozen or so stream crossings; knee-high water at one ford. I clocked the loop at 9 mi, 1145 ft, 3.5 hrs.

crazy uphills, amazing views and perfect campsites. be careful of buffalo and give them space. keep those pack weights low and glide up those hills ;).

Took my son and his friend. So proud of them since was a hard hike. Snow on top was a plus for them. My second time doing this hike

Fantastic hike! We decided to start the loop towards the left, following Backbone trail to the Sandstone Peak. The path was mostly uphill but you get instantly rewarded by beautiful views.

After the trail branches off to the Tri Tips, we followed Mishe Mokwa trail back to the parking lot. MM trail was mostly downhill and led through forest-y patches.

I loved the hike and I was happily tuckered out after finishing the 6 mi loop. However, I took one star off for Mishe Mokwa trail that seemed underwhelming after Backbone trail.

A nice hike with great views the whole time. The climb is uphill all the way to the top. The trail is narrow so watch for mountain bikes, dogs, and other hikers.

Definitely not for beginners.

Slightly over 12 miles logged to the summit from the parking lot. Loads of snow but good boots, trekking poles, and paying attention should get you to the summit in one piece ;)

It’s more of a walk than a hike, but the views are so beautiful.
