We hiked partway up this trail on July 6. We got on this trail from Peru Creek, which is a gravel road. We hiked 2 miles up the road first- don't do that if you don't have to. We should've driven up and parked.
The trail is steep at first, but travels through some interesting landscapes of pine, boulders, and an aspen grove. We only made it to the first viewpoint, a big bowl looking out over the reservoir and valley. Very worth it, though. Next time I'd like to make it above treeline.
The only traffic we ran into was mountain bikers coming downhill from A-Basin. Some of the curves are pretty sharp, so keep an ear and an eye out for everyone's safety. Some footing was loose and dusty, so wear sturdy footwear.

I love this one!! I’ve done it twice. Both times, very lightly trafficked, peaceful, serene. Beautiful flowers and breathtaking views all the while and definitely rewarding toward the top. A consistently gradual incline, not too tough!

Delightful moderate hike above the treeline. Outstanding vistas. Last cairn is a throne!

Did this in the evening around sunset. Absolutely INCREDIBLE at that time. We stayed late and could see the Milky Way!

Great trail, stunning views!

My family hiked Lenawee again this week. Challenging trail but so worth the effort. Saw three other hikers while on the mountain.

Love this trail.... so amazing. the views!

Very beautiful hike. The views are amazing! Saw lots of marmots. Not a hard hike

Stunning with wonderful wildflowers.

It was on the shorter side actually clocked 3.5O miles. Pretty easy. Felt like I could do more. That's the only reason not 5 stars. Beautiful scenery.

Beautiful. Wildflowers almost at peak. Not too windy and no snow on trail.

Amazing views--especially from the top. Few small areas of snow to cross--but done easily. First 1/2 mile intense, but levels out after that.

Boring trail. Might be good for mountain biking, but it's not very good as a hiking trail. It's very open and you can hear the noise from the highway.

June 10 2018, still snowed over on the trail in a few key places, lots of traffic but most drop out after the first or second climb.

Altitude is rough at first but the hike is beautiful. Views the whole way!

Fantastic views and super close to the highway so it was a great way to break up our drive back to the city.

Very windy but worth it. Amazing views from the start and they just get better.

Be ready for intense winds and still crossing a few snow fields. The view from the ridge line is beautiful if you can handle the gusts. The parking lot is heavily used by back-country skiers, so get there early if you want a spot. There have also been many recent spring avalanches along Loveland pass, so keep your eyes out while driving as well.

Slushy snow pack and mud made the hike slightly harder than it would on a dry spring/early summer day.

To avoid any parking tickets or being towed I parked at Peru Creek trail head about a mile north of town this will add 2 miles to your day. Hike up St. John’s road was pretty basic and snow packed about a mile up after some searching you will find Hunkidori Mine trail ( no markings for this ). Trail had not been used much and snow was soft we really needed snow shoes, even though we accepted the challenge and went on after 3 miles we had not made it all the way and decided to turn around based on continued post holing. Even with snow shoes I would rate this as average hike not a lot to see unless you are into trees, trees, and more trees! Town of Montezuma is cute and drive out US 6 up loveland pass is always a must see! Hope this helps be safe ✌

You know how the previous reviews mentioned “don’t sleep on the wind?” Yeah, well, do not! Staggering views from the start that keep getting better. No protection from elements, which only adds to the fun.

Outstandingly beautiful trail, but seriously gusty/dangerous winds at the summit. I do not recommend hiking it alone, as I needed to hold on to someone to make sure I was not blown over. Microspikes not needed.

Great views, but make sure you layer up. HEAVY winds and temps below freezing now

Pretty easy. Scenic view of the reservoir. No shelter and ideal for mountain biking.

Truly a 5 star trail. On a Wednesday afternoon in September, I literally had the entire trail to myself. One thing to note, I clocked it at more like 9 miles than the 7 miles listed.

Incredible views all the way to the top. It was pretty windy though, so it would probably be a good idea to bring some earmuffs.

Amazing views! The first .5 mile is pretty steep but it levels out after that. Worth every step.

Beautiful views all around! There were some steep inclines, but nothing too hard to make it.

This trail starts off very steep but tapers off a bit when you reach treeline. Didn't make it to the saddle, will have to go back to do that.
