Great trail; nice and easy on the way down, good workout on the way back up. Rest stop at the bottom of the hill.

Very scenic trail with ample shade along the way. We saw two Elk just off of the trail on our way up. Like the other reviewers have said this trail is extremely rocky, I think the ATVs are chewing it up more and more. We did a short overnight backing trip. We walked to the end of the trail where there was a lot of ATV traffic and decided to head back down the trail to find a camp spot. Also like the other reviewers mentioned, it's a heavily used two track ATV trail the whole way. Pros: Very scenic, Shady Areas, and a mild elevation gain. Cons: Busy (ATVs), rocky, and no water (except at beginning).

Beautiful trail that is well marked and perfect for hikers of all skill levels! Look for the blue diamonds, parking is free when you follow the description. Loved it all!!!

The trail was great. It is shared with ATVs, bikers and hikers. We encounter more ATVs than we would have liked, but then again it was Memorial Day. The trail was a nice dirt road, rocky in parts but not bad. Beautiful meadow views on the side of the trail as well.

The path is pretty rocky and so you have to watch your footing a lot in the beginning. The first mile is straight up hill which is tough but shaded. The path is about 50-75% shades so it can get hot in some parts. We saw a lot of cows along the way and you have to make sure not to step in their poop on the path. The views were nice and the after the first mile it’s pretty chill. Also there are some spots where it is confusing on which direction to go so I recommend having the map with you.

The trail is very scenic but some points did get a little confusing and we had to use the app to figure out which was the correct direction. Decently shaded for the most part.

Super pretty and shaded hike.

The loop trail has beautiful scenery throughout. There was a good mix of shaded and open areas, but I probably wouldn't do it in the heat of day during the summer. The trails are marked well the whole way! Some fallen trees along the path but most have been cut to clear the way. We started at Little Apache and it was the easier of the two. The Fir trail had a good amount of uphill that was steep at times, especially the end, and the elevation can make it more moderate. Both had easy terrain and were easy to walk.

Trail begins on a road and curves to a nicely kept grassy path. We encountered a couple downed trees, but nothing that couldn’t be stepped over or routed around close to the trail. Still had some small patches of snow. Nice and tucked away, easy access for a camp spot (rv or tent).

Alltrails did not do a great job at recording today. Hiked about 6 to 7 miles and Upper Karr Canyon to Russia Trail and Rim Road. Lovely day to be out. on the way out I think I've seen more cars then ever ( like 3 years) in Lincoln National Forest.

It’s a very rocky trail, but it’s really nice. We couldn’t find the loop so we had to go back from where we had come from since we didn’t want to do the whole 9 miles.

Very nice trail with a few over looked at the beginning.

Great trail

Hiking ATV trails aren’t my favorite, especially when they’re rocky and steep but it gets better. Took the game trails back down looking for sheds and found one!

I did this with a four year old and he walked all but a half mile. It was a great trail for bringing littles. We missed our turn on the last little bit but 5001B ends at an area currently closed so it all worked out.

A great walk and fairly level most of the time. Saw a herd of elk today. Will do this trail again.

Great trail. Tons of shade and perfectly challenging with a 30lb kid on my back!

What an absolute delight! Able to see wild horses.

Great day for a hike and this was an awesome trail! There were two parts that were pretty steep for a good ways. Made it borderline moderate. Highly recommend!

Really beautiful trail. The first mile and a quarter are straight uphill, then if you continue on Willie White it’s pretty downhill the rest of the way, so not a super fun out and back. If you take the 5008 at the junction it makes a nice loop and spits you back out 3 mile or so down Willie White past the first 1 1/4 junction.

Nice right now! There’s some snow and ice so make sure to take good shoes with grip and some trekking poles. The entrance is closed but we just parked across the entrance

I would recommend this trail all seasons. Main trail is primarily a ATV trail and can be torn up in spots. There are secondary trails which follow that are perfect for hiking. Currently (Feb) muddy in spots and higher portions are ankle to calf snow covered, but still a righteous time and completely passable. Good links to other trails if want to make a loop versus and out and back. Great trail to unplug and just enjoy the quite.

I did not complete the AllTrails route, the snow reached my knees and I had to go back, but I walked on the snow through the forest on other routes and it was a great experience. A wonderful! landscape with excellent weather.

The main area was closed as were all of the restrooms. The small parking area outside of the gates was accessible. The snow was packed and easy to walk on, but other places were icy and muddy. Beautiful walk. Saw deer and elk. Pretty easy, very well marked.
