It was a nice day out in the middle of no where. i think if it was later in the season there would be more green which would make it even a better hike.

Me and my little one who is 4 years old did this trail today and it is perfect. Easy trail with easy clear signs to follow. Definitely going to do this one a few more times.

I expected it to be more difficult.

Our ‘go to’ trail. Very nice shaded trail walk for out dogs and it’s a nice loop.

Easy trail, marked well enough. Gorgeous views. This trail would be moderate if you were out of shape as it starts at 5600ft and goes up from there.

So beautiful way worth it and it was a very easy hike with gorgeous view!

Trail was great and lots of wildlife, trail maps on app are confusing as they do not match trail maps. Example: app says 2.8 miles but the are 8+ miles of trails in this trail system. We were happy with the eight miles!

Tough challenge on my MTB....but good fun

amazing trail! the weather was perfect and I love how you can see White sands from there!!

Did this trail on 04/07/2018. The weather was perfect. Only a little chilly at night. There is a small stream at the beginning of the trail but the rest of the trail was dry. Beautiful and well kept trail! Several flat spots for camping along the way. Going back this summer for sure!

It’s a wide trail looks as if atv’s use it often. We always take a small and medium sized dogs so it was a nice trail to take them on. We didn’t see a soul out there the entire trail. It’s all up hill going in and downhill all the way out. Very nice scenery.

The falls weren't so great, but this is a wonderful & relaxing hike. Great views! Nice to see all the old train history throughout hike. Enjoyed!

Nice hike. Elevation climb is gradual and easy to navigate. Opens up to other trails for those who want to keep going. Great forested area!

1 month living in the desert, this was a welcome treat. trees, sunshine,a little snow. We trekked with our dog and 4yr old. lots of other trails, we will be back soon.

Though the trail is still very muddy in many areas (I suggest taking a bag to put your hiking shoes in after and a second pair of shoes to put on before heading out), we were able to get through the whole trail and enjoyed the great views and solitude. Not many others were on the trail at the same time.

Great area to hike! Views are great and plenty of wildlife to see.

Loved this trail! I don't think that I would rate it as moderate. We found it to be pretty easy. The 7.2 miles is if you combine all three trails together. We did two of them and it came out to be about 6 miles.

Only went in 3.7 miles. The steepest portion of the trail is the first 1.5 miles. It’s rather rocky as compared to the PNW. There were patches of snow but easily done in trail runners. Some slick mud in spots. Saw a beautiful bull elk at about 2.5 to 3 miles in. The trail stays in the trees the whole time and I’m guessing this would be a great hike in the warmer months.

This is one of my favorite trails. It’s got great views, solitude and flora and fauna. Easy to walk and pretty quick.

Awesome trail, me and my dog hiked it today, some awesome views. Trail wasn't busy at all. Definitely will go back to this trail again.

Just tried to hike this today. The trail was covered in snow and was VERY muddy. We tried to push on but the mud was so slippery that we were unable to continue. I’m sure it’s a great trail after the trail has dried out.

Beautiful trail with small streams and water fall.

Great trail, particularly in the snow covered tracks!

We got a little lost towards the end where the trails converge, but just went back the way we came. Did this trail with a 7-year-old and 14-year-old who really enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this hike. Beautiful scenery and there was some snow on the backside on the mountain when we went last weekend.

Me and my girlfriends had a great hike, with a great view!

Great views, awesome history with all the remains of the old railroad. The falls are awesome. I would like to go back when more water is flowing.
