This is a busy trail for mountain bikers with minimal elevation change, so essentially you’re on a walk with mountain bikers who either aren’t willing or able to control their bikes and definitely didn’t yield to hikers, despite trail requirements. There is also a plague warning on this trail, so not great for pets either.

This is a great trail I saw two Elk mid-way down Turkey Canyon. I recommend going clockwise, starting out with the Argentina Canyon Trail and come down the Turkey Canyon. The trail is extremely steep when you come off the Crest Trail onto Turkey Canyon.

Always in good shape. Great views and good workout if time is an issue.

awesome trail, alot of potential for bouldering, climbing, lead climbing.......nice 3 mile trail. ....will definitely do this one again !

Very easy, but great for a quick hike. Really well marked, easy to find & navigate. Perfect for new hikers to get their confidence up.

Fantastic experience! The hike from the trailhead to the lake is a pleasant stroll through the forest that includes streams and waterfalls. The trail is well marked and impeccably maintained. From the lake to the summit, one encounters seemingly endless switchbacks. The terrain varies from rock to dirt to snow and the intensity ranges from moderate to challenging. Once the saddle at the top of the climb is achieved, one is treated to an entirely new landscape of spectacular mountains on the other side. Several peaks are connected by saddles, so one can venture on after reaching Wheeler's summit.

Great place, easy hike with no technical aspects. Could not locate the geo marker on this Peak.

Camp at the lake/waterfall and enjoy. Campfire wood scarce.

Hiked and camped in August 2017.

Really gorgeous place for a hike

Good clean trail......but not alot of thrills. ......good If your walking your dogs, or rehabbing an injury, or with young children........

I did this loop trail at the end of November; the day was very pleasant, excellent for hiking. On the half part of the trail you gain elevation, not too steep in such a way that you can easily walk and enjoy. As you return, from the top, you can contemplate the amazing landscape. This is definitely a nice trail.
