Great Hike trails are clear. good trail for all ages

This was a pretty, moderate hike. One nice mountain vista and in and out of shade the whole way. Signs were decently marked, the trail head has a bathroom and paper copies of the trail maps if you want one. Even on a beautiful weekend day in the summer it wasn’t crowded on the trail.

Awesome Hike! When you get to the Mount Emily trailhead and look at the map they have it can get quite confusing. There are several different hikes and some hikes are only accessible by hiking a separate trail to reach it. There are many signs and they are quite confusing, they are all labeled but it can become challenging to distinguish which sign is pointing to which trail, just trust your gut and match it with the site map and you should be fine. This 7 mile loop is actually called Mera loop once you get up there and there are several different hikes that stem off of this one. I only did the loop this time but really want to go back and try some of the different hikes that shoot off of this one. Beautiful hike, a couple cool streams and bridges you have to cross over. There’s a couple picnic tables once you reach the halfway point. All in all a moderate 7 mile hike!! Look out for the huckleberries!!

I would do this again! Great scenery and hardly anyone on trail! Great workout :) moderate trail

Great route for an after work walk, good place to exercise the dogs. Many trails off this road.

It was a very beautiful hike. Lots of uphill. One major downfall, we never came across a view point and the trail signs are very confusing. More of a walk around the woods then scenery hiking. Other than that, it is very clean and quiet. A nice getaway.

Beautiful view and definitely worth seeing the valley for. As a pet owner, be warned of the ticks on Mt. Emily in June and July. Our dog loved the hike but was not thrilled with the 10 or so ticks we pulled off him. :-( ,Otherwise awesome hike!
