Took this trail today to get to the boat tour. Pretty and easy trail for the family to get to the river.

Took my two boys 7+9 plus wife down the trail. Took about 55 min to get to creek and waterfall. Very beautiful hike, canyon walls with trees. At the creek is a campsite plus picnic table. Some access to the creek, but not easy bcz of trees/ bushes. The waterfall appears on the canyon wall at the campsite, but it wasn’t running. You can see the wet rocks marking it, but nothing else. Walk back up was about the same amount of time. I would rate the trail as moderate.

Nice family hike. I would recommend starting early there is not a lot of shade.

Really nice hike with great views and gets you up close to the amazing pinnacles. Couple of benches along the way, if you're so inclined.

tent camped at a site within Hartman Rocks for two days - it is very quiet, with gorgeous views in all directions; on the first night it did rain for a while and was pretty windy so if you’re looking to tent, make sure you have everything staked in securely

during the daytime, it may get quiet warm so be sure to bring plenty of water if you’re not looking to leave and head into town

Beautiful hike with a couple short steep spots on way out so worth it

A lot of switchbacks down the trails make the trail a perfect grade. The trails was well maintained and had 2 bridges to cross the creek. Towards the bottom of the trail you were walking next to the creek which had numerous waterfalls. At the end you could see where the creek and river meet up and because of the current from the river up into the stream you could jump in. The canyon wall was stunning the entire way. Took my dad and I just over two hours with a break at the bottom

Beautiful trail. Amazing views. Great place to swim at the bottom. Awesome campsites down at the bottom. Wish I had known about it would have been a great place to stay. I clearly don’t do enough cardio, had to stop a few times coming back up. But we did the whole thing in about 2.5 hours including a stop at the bottom. Be sure to go check out the vista...you can look all the way down to the beach you just walked to.

230 some Steps going up and down is the only challenge here. Nice and flat following the river. I loved the feel of being in the canyon. The little history info along the way was fun too! We got to go even a bit further since the water was low. I wish it would have been Raspberry season because of all the plants along the trail. Free snacks. :)

this was a great hike!

My 12yr old daughter enjoyed this for something quick to do.

Great trails and beautiful sunset point view!

What an absolutely beautiful hike. I hiked with two Gunnison residents, that find the hike back to the top strenuous, but not too bad. For myself, coming from sea level and not used to strenuous hikes... it was really tough going up. And slow. It took us about 4.5 hours all total which included hanging out with our feet in the lake for a while before heading back up. Bring more water than you think you’ll need. Passed two great camping spots along the trail too, complete with fire pits, picnic tables, and one had a bear box. Very hard and tiring, but gorgeous.

Beautiful. Easy out and back trail. The end of the trail offer great view. No sheds though. Went out there this morning (around 6.30am on May20, 2018) so it felt nice when the sun was out. I could see it being super hot in mid-summer days.
there were some muddy spots in the beginning but they dried out pretty quickly.

GF and I did this hike two days ago and absolutely loved it. The Curecanti Creek is running high with runoff right now and was present in all of it's incredible glory. As most have commented, the climb back up is moderately strenuous, but we did it in short time. The map is a little deceptive as the trail leads all the way down to where the creek feeds into the reservoir. This is now one of our favorite hikes.

Super easy hike. Bring the dogs or kids, and a lunch to eat at the end. Great early season hike, just be prepared for super muddy spots on the trail!

Kinda strenuous, but totally worth it.

Beautiful views throughout. Beautiful in the fall time

If you get the chance you should absolutely hike this trail!!

I could explore this place for months and still not see everything. It's quite a climb, but the views are incredible!

Started from the Hartman’s parking lot and reached Aberdeen Quarry, then crossed the stream and got into the nice single track of the Aberdeen Loop, which was my final destination today. Used the double track roads to go home quickly and easily after the long ride. This route goes deep in HR but enjoyable! Make sure you have enough water to go this much far.

Though it's quite a drop, the hike back up actually felt quite gradual. Because of this (and because I'm not super athletic), I'd rate it as moderate. Of course we were hiking in October ~ perhaps the midday sun in summer would make it a different story! Ahh, but it's just about as beautiful as it gets...

We did the trail because it Saïd wheelchair friendly... but in the middle there is a bridge with stairs... so totaly not wheelchair accessible... so we were disappoined

Awesome trail. Creek is very pretty to walk along. At the end you get to a larger lake like body of water with the canyon all around you. Take a swim! The hike back is a nice little workout

This hike starts off route 92 and travels deep into a beautiful canyon.  The trail runs parallel to a raging waterfall leading to a serene reservoir with the Curecanti Needle in prominent display along the way. While it's definitely steep on the way back up, if you're in reasonable shape this hike is doable.

Neversink is never open during the summer when there is a lot of runoff. The trail tends to flood. I tried to go at the end of May and July, and the trail was closed at the bridge. The walk up the bridge was nice though.
