Did it twice this year in the month of July. I believe Soda mountain road (to get to the pct ) is closed. So don't waste a trip out there! Beautiful hike with lots of views

We enjoyed the views and variety of trees. The climb was a nice challenge with a smooth ground. It was easy to follow the signs even though there were many trails that crossed over the white rabbit trail. The trail was fairly well shaded which was nice. A nice. quick little hike, it took us 2 hours, 15 min.

Very limited parking on a very steep street.

it was very nice hike

An extraordinarily beautiful and rewarding hike. Not too difficult, but medium length. Make sure you’re acclimated!
Tough drive in, need four wheel drive and a resilient stomach

Very nice and diverse trail. Loads of wildflowers, butterflies, birds, excellent views. Lush green forest opens up to some mountain meadows, then drier open hillside showing wildfire effects from several years ago. Saw a baby black bear on the way up to the trailhead. All around well worth it and good for kids.

Did this my kids, my two year old walked most the way! View is fantastic! Recommend starting in the early morning. Took us a little over 3 hours.

Fantastic hike! One of the family's favorites. Beautiful meadows full of flowers and breathtaking views of Mt. Shasta at the top. Easy hike.

Diverse terrain. It starts in the forest and opens up. Lots of wildflowers late into the season. No grizzlies, but I did see a black bear a couple of years ago!

Fantastic hike with beautiful views. Easy to find. Summit trail is marked but then unmarked. We never knew if we actually reached the summit. Hiked this with two city-fide ten year olds. My only disappointment was the lack of real grizzlies to eat these boys and give me a moment of rural peace.

Fun trail to run with some decent climbing and roller coaster twisty turny switch backs. We went on a Tuesday morning and had no trouble with the trail being crowded but I could see it being an issue with lots of bikes on the weekend. Great trail for off peak hours.

We get just under 5.5 miles for the loop based on our GPS record. Always a lovely hike and the trail is in superb condition.

Easy to moderate trail in the spring and summertime. My pup loves it best.

This would be a nice hike if it weren't for the rude and dangerous mountain bikers. It is called Toothpick for a reason, very narrow often with no room on either side and the bikers come flying down the hill not even having the decency to tell you there are others behind them. Definitely not good for taking your dog.

I have little respect for these bikers.

Easy to moderate, well marked trail. Spectacular 360 views, perfect place for a picnic. No snow mid-May 2018. Great reward to effort ratio!

This is a beautiful area, but not great for hikers. There were multiple groups of mountain bikers and we had to be constantly be ready to jump off the trail. If you’re a mountain biker, this is a great trail!

Hiked with Daniela the morning of 5/25. Beautiful! Would rate it easy/moderate, only a couple times that went a little up hill otherwise it was easy and beautiful. Love that part of it was a loop trail. We could see Mt. Shasta and Mt. Adams from the top. When we first arrived we only saw 4 people, by the time we got down the parking lot was completely full!

This is a beautiful and fun trail to hike. Dog friendly! Just a really busy trail. Hard to find parking at times

Did 05/27/18 I think it’s closer 11.5 miles though.

A few muddy spots in spring, but a great hike for kids (ages 5 & 9) and leashed dogs. Flowers, mountain views and butterflies this time of year.

Nice hike. Pretty quick and easy. The only semi tough part was the stretch of uphill road you climb to the top. Good amount of wildflowers and nice views of Shasta, McLoughlin, and Pilot Rock. There was mud at the beginning of the trail and it was thick, so bring an extra pair of shoes/socks if it has recently rained.

this was an awesome Trail did not realize how stupid was close to the top but we managed with a toddler screaming at us the whole time LOL

Absolutely gorgeous views! Most of the trail was perfect for running.

Our family of 5 hiked this trail today and loved it! The kids (ages 10-14) commented on how much they enjoyed it and would do it again! It is easy to find the trailhead and the trail was in great shape. The entire hike is gorgeous and the views are expansive and breathtaking! Highly recommend this hike!

Went up the trail for the first time with my two little dogs in a bicycle basket at times. When it got too steep I pushed the bike ... we had sooo much fun. Great trail condition with some challenges at times ... but that's what I want. Bike/hike is what we are going for. Cruising along at times gives rider and passengers a nice break to recover ... wonderful views everywhere. Met some nice hikers on the top...
