There’s a good few spots flooded so prepare to get your feet wet or back track or go off trail if needed. Super beautiful short walk/run though!

Hiked the trail today, it was very muddy the first 1.5 miles. Lots of snakes in the muddy spots. Otherwise, a really good hike.

Per usual, Bear Creek Overlook never disappoints! beautiful hike beautiful day...still some snow and muck on the trail... got a couple of ticks as well... but otherwise it was perfect! Even saw an elk a few hundred feet away!

There are about 7 water areas you have to cross. A few of them are really long and rushing down pretty hard. Prepare to have wet feet but other than that trail is in great condition. Worth it!

Wonderful trail that is easy to access and can be used for many different activities: biking, walking, running, or a picnic (lots of spots near the river). Very flat with a nice, wide trail. More of a “walk” compared to a “hike.” Lovely views of the river and some mountains in the distance.

6/02/2020. This is quite the hike. Amazing view of the mountains (as far as the eye can see) the entire way up. It is a very steep hike and my friend and I both rated this as hard (considering ourselves fit/skilled hikers), but it’s well worth it. Hiking poles may be a good idea! Enjoy the view at the top! *was very buggy nearing the top. Also, had to scramble up some snow to get to the very top (last 15 feet - a bit slippery).

What an amazing hike! I was hoping to hike beyond the meadows and camp for the night, but I got sick of fighting snow and turned back. Absolutely stunning. Just be aware of snow, it gets pretty deep passed the meadow. Some areas are very muddy, lots of flowing water. Wear good, thick shoes. Not many people, only saw 2 on my way out.

Very pretty! I took my 2 yr old in a pack & my 4 yr old walked, and we had a great time!

Very nice hike through the woods. The incline is gradual and not steep at all. You barely notice the 700+ft gain. We saw 5 deer scattered throughout the trail. Lots of wildflowers. Nice and dry conditions. A beautiful day for this hike.

Beautiful area. Pretty sure it was just me my dog and the bears. 2nd stream crossing was to much for my pup. Road is closed about a mile before the trailhead.

Good mix of hikers, bikers and joggers. Exposed to sun in a small couple of sections but shade otherwise. Trail is clear, but towards the summit there is an unmarked split which is the loop so it really doesn’t matter which way you go. Great view at top, especially for the sunset.

Clean trails, not to crowded (did a tuesday) lovely views, great flower blooms right now. Other hikers had off leash dogs. Fine for them but some pups are dog reactive. Heel your off leash pups when interacting w/ others plz. Great trails for families and newer hikers/weak legs!!

This is a pretty easy 3 mile one way trail to a cataract of a waterfall that is more than worth the hike. The first 1.5 miles are mostly spent along the creek, with a few steep sections across talus slopes. After reaching the intersection with the Long Valley trail, the trail stays along meadowlands for another mile or so before a spur trails drops from the main Crow Creek trail down to the base of the falls in a quarter mile

Hiked all the way to the summit Mon 6/1/20, still some snow near the top, could have used a pole or two for navigating that part, but found a stick that did the trick. Beautiful shaded trail and views at the top did not disappoint!

6/1/20 Trail closed no permits granted by the tribe.

6/1/20 Don't bother with this hike it's closed to everyone with the exception of tribal residents even if you have a permit. The range patrolling the road said they would soon be setting up manned barricades.

Really beautiful, saw a gopher snake /bull snake and an elk!! Lots of wildflowers blooming! My legs are killing me but it was worth it. Went on a cloudy afternoon which was perfect for this cause there are no trees (there’s 1 for sure I can remember that gives shade), but otherwise was beautiful!

Made it to the peak on 5/31/2020. Still lots of snow and no trail for the last mile roughly. 3hrs to the top and 5hrs round trip total. Great views and well worth the trek to the top.

Does anyone know if the road to fairy lake is open?

6/2/20- snow starting at 6100 ft, there are several different trails in the snow so it’s hard to stay on trail at that point. The snow is really wet and slippery and I think it might be difficult even in snowshoes because of the grade. It might be worth it to wait until later in the season but overall a beautiful hike.

a moderate hike, ugly terrain unless in spring when its green, even worse are the entitled people who seem to flock to this area. Do during the spring or be bored to death of all the brown.
