Seemingly easy loop with some occasion to watch your footing per loose rock and slick, spring dampened spots. The topography and geology is stunning. The scrub- high-desert biome is decorated with beautiful rock formations and panoramic views. The trail winds from elevated points through a scrub-wooded bottom that offers new perspectives on the towering rocks, in a peaceful and cool glen. This Reserve is a gem and I look forward to returning for more hikes!

Flat, easy trail but pretty boring when compared to some of the other incredible trails nearby. I won't go back but glad I did it once.

Absolutely beautiful drive!

Since moving here, this has become a regular trail. Very easy way to get 4 flat miles into our daily routine on this very level, easy trail. Careful as sometimes during the year- especially late summer and fall- there are moose on this trail quite frequently. Great spot to see ant mounds (please don't destroy them- this is the refuge and everything here is protected!) and teach your kids about them and their colonies. Birds are everywhere, though you may need to stop to hear over the crunching of leaves and gravel! It is NOT dog friendly as some people have said the signs very clearly state this. I have requested for the dog friendly tag to be removed from this. Enjoy!

If you're looking for incredible scenery well off the beaten path, great place to hike etc. Drove up from salt lake for the day.
went April 1st- the upper trails were still covered with deep snow drifts but the lower trails were all clear.
Few rock climbers we stopped and watched, apparently busier during the warmer months.
Passed cars and hikers on the roads, but plenty of trails you can put together: never saw another soul once we got out on the trails.

This is a great trail for running! We would run it all the time for XC practice. there is not very much elevation and high chances of running into wildlife. It over looks deep creek for a portion of the trail. There is not alot of great sights but still worth the time to explore.

Beautiful Hike!!

Gorgeous drive, but make sure you've allotted more time than you think would be necessary. The 45mph Yellowstone speed limit coupled with the frequently heavy traffic through the Rockefeller thoroughfare and down through Teton Nat'l Park make the 125 miles seem a bit longer. Bring a camera because you'll kick yourself if you don't.

We didn't hike far to the climb. The climb was superb as a beginner. Camping is outstanding as is watching all of the climbers!
