Amazing trail. Did it get n November so a little slick in spots, but overall top notch

Amazing views at the top. definitely tough to keep on the "trail" most the way up.
I really enjoyed it.....

This is a great trail. Moderately challenging with stunning views. Nice length if you want a good half day workout.

We hiked in Nov and there was very little snow. The trail was often rocky with elevation gain but it was enjoyable. The views of the Needles, Stockade Lake and Crazy Horse were cool. There had been lots of tree cutting and down timber, so the trail didn’t follow the map. Could use some maintenance.

went counter clockwise. most of the trail is in woods, crossing creeks and only one outlook. pretty but kind of ho hum after awhile. good workout

Nice paved trail for walking with some gentle elevation change. For the more adventurous, there is a rocky area to climb on and get closer to the falls. There are some points of interest along the walking trail. Lots of green space too. Very busy on a nice Sunday afternoon in July.

One negative is the smell. I'm not sure if it's something that runs through the water or if it's just one of the industrial facilities near the park, but there is a pretty nasty smell in the area.
