I'm giving this hike 4 stars only because the name of it is misleading. It does not go to the top of Oliver Peak, unless the top of Oliver Peak is much farther than the 8.4 mile round trip that is indicated by this app. It is a beautiful and fun trail to hike, though. The trail takes you in and out of the forest so you get great views of the valley and surrounding mountains, but still get to hike in the shade about half the time. There were so many wildflowers! Once you get to the ridge line you are walking through a field of wildflowers for almost a quarter mile. Absolutely gorgeous!
So the trail splits once you hit the ridge, we took the left trail since that is what others recommended. Once on the ridge, what I assume is Oliver Peak, is easy to identify. The trail continues southeast and goes right by the peak, though. Reading other reviews we decided to bushwhack our way to the top of the peak instead of continuing down the trail. Sure wish I knew where that trail led though. It was a fun one to hike and I'd love to follow it to the end one of these days.

If you're looking for a workout this is the trail , steady incline and rocky with not much to see on way up. The top is nice however.

Lots of wild flowers, easy trail only draw back is can see and hear highway at points.

Nice easy trail. Lots of wildflowers. Too bad it wasn't a loop trail.

First and foremost, it should be mud pond. When I arrived I thought to myself "this can't be it" and continued on for another 1/2 mile and found nothing.
After seeing pictures from another post I realized that I was at the right spot.
I suppose I call a lake something much bigger than this?
The hike itself is very vertical from the beginning and the first 1/3 mile has been overtaken by flooding causing a deep ditch in the middle.
Overall it is a decent hike, the payoff wasn't worth the hike, mainly because it's used for cattle grazing, walked through cow dung and battled through a 100+ herd.

Fun trail. Current state isn't the best. It's a bit washed out and muddy in spot but in other spots it's great. The first 2/5 is awesome. Really pretty and beside the big tree that fell in the middle of the trail, it's clean. However, once your approaching the first ridge and come to a grove of fallen trees (many in the way of the path) the trail will become harsh. Towards the top there are still a lot of snow banks. Be very careful on them. They are slippery and cover the trail. As someone else has commented, approaching the top is very annoying. The snow is covering the northwest side of the hill. However just stay on dirt and you should be alright. There is a path that comes around through some bushes. Not too bad but I didn't take it. I just followed the ridge up and down. The top is great. Nice and clear. Overall, the trail needs some work. But if you're down to just go for it and push your self through the times that trail isn't the best, it's great.

Great trail for dogs, especially those that like to swim!

Did this with my son (10). It was a pleasant hike. Passed 3 other groups including one motorcycle (trail is closed to motorized vehicles). Once you hit the ridge the trail divides and the main trail drops into the next drainage. Stay left and go southeast on the ridge. The trail continues on past the peak and doesn't go up the peak. We didn't know this and followed the trail to the south ridge then went up the ridge to the peak. Easier route would be to go up the southwest ridge through a sagebrush covered slope (this is how we came down).
