This is a nice, well marked, easy to follow trail, great for beginners with Dry Creek Falls as a big reward at the end. Hikers comment that they love cooling off in the pool next to the waterfall which is also a perfect picnic spot. It's shady and quiet with a few fallen trees to navigate around. Show more

Nice trail and a heck of a work out! There are some nice views along the way to the top. As you’ve read from other reviews the top is developed, but you still get that sense of accomplishment when you finally get there. Right now the mountain is icy/snowy up top. You can do the hike with regular hiking boots, but use caution as it is slick coming down. Dress warm! The wind is no joke up there and it definitely cuts through clothes.Show more
