Great for all skill levels! Lots of bikers so stay on the look out because the trail is narrow at many points. Good trail for a run. Not too much gravel to slip on.

Easy, accessible, make decisions as you go to make the hike as long, as short, and as difficult as you’d like. Lots of bikers however

Great trail. Not easy! A little rough at the beginning. After half way through its easy. Totally worth it. The view is absolutely amazing.

Tough in the beginning, but worth it! Great views and beautiful time of year to go.

Awesome trail!! Very easy to get off the trail however, as it is poorly marked. Had to have my map open almost the whole time! Otherwise beautiful!

its actually 11.8 all the way around i got back to my car like 5 minutes after the gate was supposed to close but the guy was super nice and waited for me to lock it

Hard to get parking at 10:30 on a Monday morning. The hike was nice, for the first bit you walk on a dirt road with limited shade. When the road ends it’s a nice trail with a stream and steady incline.

This an excellent trail for hiking or cyclists of all levels. I take our 4yr old and 6yr old on this trail and they love it too!! There are areas where you will have to walk your bike but it is well worth it. Great views too!!

Some good inclines, but you’re hiking along the road most of the time so it doesn’t really feel like an escape into nature.

It was a nice, easy trail. I gave it 4 stars because it’s near a road basically the entire way and you can hear traffic, which I don’t personally care for, but the forest views were beautiful.

This is a great quick hike. So convenient for a before or after Trader Joe's trip with your children. Less than 1 hour. Full

Fairly steep incline after the wide horseshoe bend trail at the start.

Decent trail with good views and no shade, so bring sunscreen and water. Definitely echo the sentiments that the trail is hard to follow at times, making me lose momentum along the way.

Trail sort of gets lost towards the chutes. As well near Gold camp road. Mountain biking trails merge with chamberlain and LOTS of Mountian bikers even on a Monday. Great view of the reservoirs and a good 4 mile hike. June starting to get really hot out so recommend hitting this trail early in the morning!

LOVE this trail! Very scenic, not crowded at all (thankfully!) and very kid friendly. Just be very careful! There are rattlesnakes so pay attention! Ran into one today!

Kind of redundant but a heck of a workout!!

started raining at the top! so cool

Got there at 8:30 in the morning on a Sunday. Was the first car in the lot hardly any people. Finished by 10:30 parking lot was full but trails still not bad. Got off trail a couple of times but not too bad. Would recommend for a nice leisurely hike.

Great hike started at 9:30. Not many people out.

Great hike! Come early.

Pretty, easy hike with kids. Pretty busy. People were mostly unmasked but respectful of distance.

Steady incline to the waterfall summit. Trail is pretty well marked out (got off the trail a handful of times). Once you get off the gravel road it’s shaded 50/50. Got there at 7AM on a Saturday and the parking area was already 50% full.

Really good, challenging hike with a kid on my back. It was well traveled today. Nearly everyone was not wearing a mask but respectful of keeping social distance whenever possible. We parked at the Nature Center and made it about 75 minutes in before turning around. Will be back!

If you're looking for a long, somewhat difficult hike with great views, this is the one for you. Most of the trail is moderate, but the last section of the Dixon trail and some parts of the Dragon's Backbone are difficult. Some scrambling is required on the Dragon's Backbone (especially to get to the highest point on that trail). The trail on the Dragon's Backbone can also be hard to find in some places, so pay attention and look for stacks of rocks left by other hikers, wooden stakes, trail markers, and colored tape around trees. After you do the Dragon's Backbone, if you want to get to the highest accessible point on the mountain, take the Mountain Loop trail before taking the Dixon trail back down (disclaimer: not really a lot of views from the Mountain Loop trail). Definitely bring a lot of water, snacks, and some sunscreen (the Talon trail is only partially shaded). Overall, great hike.

Pretty trail. Definitely an easy trail not moderate.

Pretty loud trail. Runs along the road the whole way.

Although rated as a moderate, should be rated easy. It is scenic once you get into the trail a bit...
