Great short uphill hike with a beautiful view. Lots of bugs, bring mosquito repellent!! When you get to the lookout you will see different types of birds as well.

Great hike! For everyone really but if you’re looking for an easy hike for kids to enjoy this is it! All ages! We only made it to Box Lake and that’s only because we took our time looking at all the scenery and a bit of exploring off trail. We definitely will be coming back. No bugs at all could be because it was a bit cool. But nothing a light sweater can’t fix. Beautiful views and great weather. No snow on the trail but more to the sides, looks like it most likely will be completely gone soon.

Loved this hike! About an hr up and back! Dogs had a blast!

Great hike Up the mountain, did Sherwood lake trail then continued up. Bring a jacket! Dog friendly:)

The entry fee is $5 per person you got to pay Online.

The first mile or so consists of a steady incline. There were many sections both on the out and back and throughout the loop with shady areas. It was perfect for an overcast day. The trail was easy to navigate using this app’s map. The non-loop portion of the trail was heavily trafficked. I started after 930 am and I’d do this trail again but definitely a bit earlier.

beautiful views and places to stop for a picnic. Too many cars today creating jams on the narrow parts. Not really a technical drive but good elevation, rocky and bumpy, overall good off road fun.

Great trail! I recommend going up the ridge trail and down the shorter trail. Beautiful views from the water tower! No ice or snow and only slightly muddy today. Lots of dogs!

Lovely quick trail. Such a gem in Eagle River- a must for a quick hike with kids!

went up new & down new. 11.2 miles. it's was foggy but cleared up for a few minutes & got a nice view. a bit muddy but nothing too crazy you can't walk around. that last mile is honestly the worse part of it haha. it's tough! but not impossible. not for beginners but also doesn't take a pro to get up there.

Its a mile from the parking lot to the waterfall and offers a great way to cool off from hot sun.

Not a very long hike but takes you across a breathtaking slick rock gorge and leads to a large arch.

It's Open and beautiful! the view from the Dome is stunning!! it's a short off road trail in your car to get there so I would recommend All wheel drive or a 4×4 vehicle. Our truck made it fine, lots of parking and you can flip down the tailgate and have a picnic! I could sit at the Dome all day and just watch that beautiful Ridgeline of mountains. you can also see the Needles very well from this location.

One of my favorites so far! My first time hiking up and I took poles plus wore spikes and they were much needed! It’s beautiful, majestic, and windy! Mud and snow along the way. Warm, but the wind would pick up and die down regularly. I was fine wearing a tank but added a long sleeved top at the top when I cooled off for a bit. Took it back off when I got to the lower part of the trail because it was very warm. Temperatures are great for May! If you don’t like hiking in snow, I would wait a couple of weeks to go up. I didn’t go to the peak because of the slushy snow and warm weather.

We were there the last day of May 2020. The trail is really hard. The length is only 2,6 miles, but mostly there is very steepy, so you are double tired. Besides there is a lot of bush on the trail, and path is very narrow. You can loss the trail very easily if you don’t know where to go in important points. I recommend you full charge cellphone with map of this trail. Trail isn’t one simple way. If you want to see waterfalls, you have to stray from the main road a little bit every time.

Steady incline the whole way up. Larkspur blooming along the first ridge with beautiful views of Sylvan lake early on. The trail has views of the red cliffs and then meanders into woods. It ends in a meadow past a great little waterfall. Perfect morning hike!

Found this trail to be challenging with a steady and climb all the way up with spectacular views at the top. Will definitely be back again to do the other trail.

Beautiful !!!!

Already wrote my review but forget to mention - if you take dogs or children, make sure it’s before the sun comes out and it starts heating up. The way back up is a challenge, and your pups could overheat very quick.

Dusty trail that leads to great views. To get up to the rocks requires some kick-stepping into loose sand. There were beautiful wildflowers in late April.
