Nice trail ... good workout. For the 2nd year in a row we managed to be on the trail picked for the 100mi marathon run. Lots of nice folks in the run. Wildlife included a nice sage grouse, deer, eagle and hawks. Smoke was clearing, so visibility was greatly improved.

Easy to walk up except for the lose dirt road that makes you slide around and the altitude jump at the end. Spectacular view at the top.

One of my favorites. The amount of time spent above tree line makes this a magical alpine experience.

Hard? Yes and no. There are a few seriously steep parts that I needed to rest on the way up and shuffle sideways to go down. The trail is all dirt road. There are a few spots to camp up there if you don't mind foot traffic in your tiny spot. definitely sunny and dusty. The rock was cool; the view not as spectacular as others but still worth it.

Very enjoyable hike. I don't exactly agree with Hard rating for difficulty. Moderate would be more accurate. The three lakes at the top were gorgeous and the water was crystal clear. Next time I'll bring my fishing pole, the trout were jumping everywhere!

I have done a lot of the trails up here at state forest state park in my Nissan Frontier. some of these trails are pretty challenging with steep rocky switchbacks. Watch out for ATVs, these trails are narrow! I will take pics next time I am up there.

Great hike. Moderate hike imo. Very sunny, not a whole lot of shade so bring sunscreen! Beautiful views!
