Beautiful trail!

Beautiful trail! Love being able to walk down near the creek. If you're up for it, Dalton Lake is just a mile or so past the end of the trail.

Great trail that the kids loved.

more of a moderate loop network of wide dirt/grass trails thru pasture and tall pine stands. good for the novice as footing is good and climbs aren't that steep. loops allow you to add on muiles if you want ant trailhead just about 8 miles from Spearfish.

Great trail! Amazing views. I have hiked several trails and this one ranks up there as a must see. 6yr old and Cockapoo dog had no problems.

A lot of fallen trees that block the trail. You can climb over them but these just make it more challenging. Beautiful scenery but no wildlife today

Snow depth was amazing. NOAA stated 40"-50", I would say closer to 30"! Still a beautiful and moderately strenuous snowshoe adventure. My nephew tagged along, but doesn't own snowshoes and struggled the entire time. Plenty of great looping/crossing trails that are reasonably marked but as a first time visitor to the area, they come up a bit short. Found myself relying heavily on GPS. I suspect these trails to be much more easy to navigate without snow cover but then we wouldn't be snowshoeing. Due to the low number of reviews/photos, I did not have a high expectation for the area. However, it exceeded my expectations in accessibility and beauty. I would definitely snowshoe or hike this area again.

Great trail for snowshoeing. We took the trail all the way to the top and then took the road to (frozen) Dalton Lake. It was worth the little extra to go up there. There was fresh snow the day we went and it couldn’t have been better! Beautiful trail along the creek. Beautiful canyon scenery.

Very cool! Multiple trails that loop together. Very well marked and maps at most major intersections. Excellent snowshoe and cross country trails in winter.

This is FAR from "Aggressive"!
I love this trail for exercising my dog, and myself, as well as early morning (sunrise) photography, but this is FAR from "Aggressive" (Maybe for YOUNG children I guess)

Awesome hike!!!

It has been a while but I loved this ride. I do not think I could do this ride now as it was rugged with a lot of elevation change. It took me 5 days but a rider in great shape should do it in two.

Nice hike :) wish there were a sign. Loved hiking on Creek.

I love this trail. The brook next to the trail gives the perfect amount of noise. No parts that are to steep. This trail is an old track the mines used.

Great trail, well maintained. Only saw two other hikers. Started from the Sheridan Lake trailhead and went about 2.2 miles in and back again. Interesting tunnels along the way.

Great out and back trail, (little over 5 mi) stream running next to most of the trail, at the end of the trail you can walk on a gravel rd about another 1 and a half mile to get to Dalton lake. popular place for 4 wheelers.

Hiked 5 miles in from Sheridan Lake and back. Trail is great with nice views and beautiful fall colors. The hike is pretty easy following the flume. The history and seeing the remains of the flume and tunnels are what make this trail great.

Great trail! Have done two separate parts of the trail at different times, hope to do the whole thing sometime.
