My girlfriend and I hiked this trail mid-day in a Friday. Did not encounter anyone. The trail wasn’t to bad to hike and had great views, Overlooking the forest and within. We came across plenty on wild life and was able to hear an elk close by but did not see it. I recommend this trail if you are in the area. But it can be difficult if you’re not in decent shape.

a nice hike, a challenge but not too much of a challenge.

I just started to really get into hiking this year, so I consider myself a beginner. This is by far the hardest trail I have completed so far. I felt good the first 5 miles, The last 3 miles were very hard. La Luz Trail is no joke. Throughout the whole trail there is amazing views. La Luz Trail is for sure an accomplishment for a beginning hiker.

Great trail (: We didnt go all the way in the cave but it was pretty cool. Awesome veiw.

Wow what a workout! And awesome free view

Tough hike- go with someone who knows the trail your first time. Wear really good shoes and bring rock climbing gloves. Plan a full day if you aren't an expert hiker.

Just beautiful in the fall, call the ranger station before you make the drive, they can tell you the progress of the leaves so you don't miss the window. If you go to early the leaves will still be green and go too late and they will be on the ground. Very busy trail, lots of people, kids, dogs, and horses. Best part is this is also a campground so the whole forest smells like freshly burned pine. Great hike for kids!

Hard trail and some parts I wonder if I was on a trail. Longer than 3 miles
