HikingGreat!

Beautiful! We loved it. Definitely not a beginner’s hike. I usually do moderate hikes and this was the first I’ve done this year that was rated as difficult... it certainly was challenging, but I was fine. Just bring lots of water and take plenty of breaks. The views at the top are worth it, and the cabin was very cool.

HikingGreat!

Great hike. Great reward. Great trail. But... be aware it is fairly steep and relentless. After a short little warmup you climb for the balance of the trip out. It's beautiful, and the trail is generally even and pretty smooth, but it's a long hard workout for the average Joe (or Josephine). We made it to the cabin in a bit over two hours. The return was an hour twenty or so. There is no water for dogs after the first mile, and much of it is pretty exposed weather-wise. We did it on a cool day, so no problem. The vista from the cabin is awesome.

Great hike! One of hardest this season. Waaaay incline and the decline hard on the toes. Loved the views and diverse terrain. Excellent for dogs and picnic at top.

Super fun hike. Lots of switchbacks. Some new trees down from a recent windstorm. One of my favorite hikes this year.

If you plan on staying the night, make sure you bring plenty of water- there’s no place to refill. The view from the cabin is gorgeous, especially just before sunrise.

it was fun, two ways up a longer easier path or straight up hard path. Been a while since I've hiked next time will be faster.

Beautiful hike with amazing views. Relatively steep with a non stop climb but worth it. Bring water as only about half is shaded.

Slow easy grind up the switchbacks, technical decent down the rocky spine. Great views of Hailey and surrounds. Dip your feet in the Big Wood River after.

HikingGreat!

Started off on the switchbacks but took a wrong turn at the graffiti wall and ended up scaling straight up the mountain. Had to stop a few times and the path straight up isn’t really marked, but solid footing the entire time. Top of the mountain was amazing, beautiful views. Found the switchbacks in the way down and it was a breeze heading back. Tons of fun and totally doable, even for a few beginner hikers like us.

Hiking

Hiked this loop many times and agree with the last reviewer- not sure where 9.6 miles is coming from, the full loop is close to 11.5 or 12. If you do this in late summer, make sure you bring plenty of water and sunscreen- the way up can be a scorcher!

Hiking

Great, scenic hike with a nice mix of shaded areas and open pastures. We went out and back on this trail so can't speak to the loop that incorporates Long gulch. The hike is actually a little less than 8 miles, so not that long. However, it is a nice steady uphill climb which makes for great exercise. The trails are not rocky so the footing is excellent. The cabin at the top is a great place to relax for lunch or other sustenance.

My wife, six year old, and 9 year old did this hike. We went straight up to the top - the kiddos struggled with it. We took the switchbacks on the way down - MUCH easier. If you have younger kids, I recommend the switchbacks up and down. Beautiful views, though!

AllTrails said 9.6, I clicked 11.5... don’t bring dogs unless you know they can handle it, have booties for the hot sand, and just as much water as the people - if not more.

Hiking

We went up the Pioneer Cabin Trail (you can choose to come back down this one or via Long Gulch, they end at the same place). The first two miles are pretty well shaded, especially if you leave early- which I recommend. First two miles are just okay and they’re switchbacks in a forest. Once things open up towards the top it gets good. Great views, stunning wildflowers, and a few straight aways to take a break from the steady incline. We came back down Pioneer Cabin Trail as I’m recently recovered from a broken ankle and was a tad nervous about the footing on Long Gulch. This hike is definitely worth doing.

Pretty hike with enough elevation to get your legs burning but not overwhelming. Excellent trail in the spring as the snow is melting at higher elevations.

Great loop. Some sections of scree on counter-clockwise way down after the cabin. Good shoes and trekking poles are highly recommended.

This is an awesome hike! Half of the hike is in the woods and the other half of exposed. Make sure you have water. Lots of switchbacks and a few steep parts but it’s WORTH it! The cabin is super cool - the view by the cabin is just incredible. There are wildflowers about 2 miles up - just stunning. No technical hiking, trail is well maintained and easy to follow.

Nice walk up to the top, very steep if you go straight up, but switchbacks make it easy if you take them instead. Dry and hot with no shade, but view on top is beautiful

Nice trail, great workout. Kid friendly: my two year old handled it pretty easily. Down was a different story for him but slow and steady he did fine. Beautiful view, had fun watching planes take off.

This trail has no shade. Don’t do on a warm summer day. It’s great for hard exercise. Go straight up and your calves will be hollering. Loose rock but surprisingly stable. Switchbacks make an easier trail
