Very pretty trail. If you’re looking for a hike w/o elevation, I highly recommend this trail.

Tricky getting there. Come all the way up past the golf course. Park in the first dirt lot on the right of what feels like a three way branch off at the end of the road, with the probation camp to the left and the equestrian center in the middle. Trail starts behind the sign or walk down the street in the middle toward the equestrian center. Saw a coyote. A few mountain bikers. Inclines and declines. A good easy to moderate loop that took us 45 min. Nice starter that has options for longer if you have the time and energy. Glad I hit record to track my hiking progress as this helped me to follow where I was in real time.

The trail is covered in snow, water, mud, and a few waterfalls. Be sure to bring the appropriate gear like hiking shoes, gloves, waterproof clothing, etc. The payoff at the lake is worth it. I was there on a weekday early afternoon and had the lake (and the way back) all to myself. Pretty awesome experience!

Great trail. Very scenic

This trail was easy to get to in a truck, had beautiful desert flowers blooming, and gorgeous pictographs. It was easy to hike, but we didn’t do the whole thing. I highly recommend. We were there in the spring.

Absolutely cool with very sharp and steep switchbacks at the Island in the Sky entrance. We did it in a 2001 chevy van with a small trailer for a trail bike. It was very rough in places with some rocky stretches. We did lose a trailer light due to the vibration. I would recommend a higher clearance vehicle that can handle rough roads or a trail bike. My brother took the trail bike and said no problems at all. My sister said never again. LOL. She was scared to death going down the switchbacks. It was probably scarier on her side and she wasn't driving.

Incredible and diverse loop trail. This was one of my favorites in the state. Using Gaia GPS we logged 7.22 miles. The All Trails App indicates the trail is 6.3 so there is a discrepancy somewhere. I would plan for a lengthy and challenging hike. We hiked in late October with high temps in the 70s and still drank way more water than we thought we would. Bring LOTS of water! Sunscreen is critical as well. Definitely check out the fern cave which is just a minute or two on a spur from the main trail.

This isn't exactly a trail review since we weren't on the trail very long. Seemed like a great mountain biking course and was along a creek. Within minutes of parking (Anthill parking lot) and hitting the trail our car was broken into (door handle drilled in some fashion in the key hole) and multiple items were stolen including credit cards which were immediately used at Kroger down the road. Yes, I know, I should have taken them with me. But use my experience as a warning! We were in a heavily tinted vehicle so they didn't break in knowing they'd find something. No security in this parking lot, not many people frequent it all day, and this was a FAST job. Hikers and bikers, beware. Also, side note, good luck getting the police to come out if something does happen.

A well developed trail from the ccc days. Worth an afternoons adventure. What impressed me most was the accessibility offered if you were with a disabled rider or kids in strollers.

Hiked yesterday and the trails were dry and easy to handle. Many people near the nature center and playground but not a lot on the actual trails

This is actually a tale of two trails. We decided to do the Bridal Path, which was excellent. Poles are recommended and micro-spikes are a must. If we took just this trail up to the ridge, hit all the peaks and then turned back, I would give this hike 5 stars. Fantastic views on the way up and across the Ridgeline. However, the Falling Waters trail which completes the loop is like that haunted forest in fairey tales. The entire trail is slop mud, slick rocks and roots. Plus, unlike the other trail, there are no views. The last two miles were extremely treacherous as it took you down into the waterfall areas. I fell multiple times, even with poles, to the point I was ready to put my spikes back on. I'm surprised there isn't a pile of hiker's bodies somewhere along this trail. Do yourself a favor and skip this part of the trail until it dries up, and even then I'd not walk near the falls without spikes on. An out and back would have made for a perfect day.

Beautiful trail. I started at sunset and finished well after dark. It’s close to six miles from the parking lot, around the loop, and back to the parking lot. I think my log showed 5.8 at the end.

nice hike

Did the full loop on Oct 21st with no traction cleats, just running trail shoes, my wife slipped and fell a handful of times, she got bruised and scraped but could have been worse, me and my 13lbs poodle mix did fine but wouldn’t have gone up without spikes if I knew how icy it was up there. Anyways, best hiking I’ve done in the US

This trail is at least 50% paved road. The off-road is really just a dirt road for vehicles. It’s flat and somewhat sandy with smooth rocks that provide some bumps. Certainly not a challenging trail at all. Might be good for teaching young kids (or older novices) some basic bike handling. Weather was perfect, the river was running, and plenty of birds on the lake. All in all, enjoyable, but not worth the entry fee and drive.

I loved the trail! It was very peaceful but be careful where you park! My car windows were smashed out along with other cars that were parked there. Someone tried to rob the cars there.

Nice for a sunset
