Awesome ride with incredible views.

This trail is closed. Tried to go the other day and it’s not a public Trail.

A dry hot hike in the summer with a lot of full sun. I recommend doing it on a mild temperature day. Pretty steep and narrow at the beginning.

Hard trail with beautiful views along the way and an astounding Panorama at the summit! Some switch backs but mostly up hill trekking. Hiking boots recommended and saw a lot of hiking poles being used as well.

Trail was slightly confusing at points but everything split off simply leads in a circle to the main trail. Also the beginning of the trail is in a fine Gentleman's yard who sells delicious, home made red wine. Try it!

This was a bit more than moderate. Hiking boots are best! It is 6 miles round trip and 3100ft. Better to do in the morning not mid day sun.

Beautiful hike with the wild flowers. Wear good boots or hiking shoes with grip. No running shoes for the decline. Older gentlemen who built the trail 28 years ago is at the bottom selling good white wine. Told us it took him 3 years to build by himself. Beautiful sights of the enchantments. A little narrow in spots with a hard drop... so be mindful. The trail is also uphill for a majority so if you aren't in good shape, you might want to take your time. Can't wait to go back in a couple weeks!

Gorgeous views. Views all the way up, not just at top.

Fun family-friendly trail. Pretty wild flowers throughout. Very pastoral. Mostly open and exposed so bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

Amazing wild flowers now. Yellow bantams in full bloom everywhere. Quite a sight to see! Purple lupine just beginning. Blue bells at higher elevation. Recommend the left turn at fork to see best views south and west of Leavenworth, valley, and enchantments in distance. Very steep at some points, especially top. Was dry with loose gravel Wednesday 5/3, feet slipped some. We took north east loop back, much easier and better on 51-year old knees for descent. Love love loved hiking this. Plenty of shade for water and snack breaks. Highly recommend.

Hiked out here yesterday with friends, it sure was a beautiful day for it. I was disappointed that the wildflowers weren't in full bloom so my friends could see how beautiful it can be. I'd give it 2/2 1/2 weeks and they should be in full bloom. I'm glad we got there early, we past many people on our way back down and there must have been at least 20 cars at the trailhead.

Nice trail! Heavily used. Will return on weekdays for the wildflowers and views.

A nice ride on a nice day. Not a lot to do along the route but the scenery makes up for it.

So, this is steep and the trail is narrow...with some areas that have drop offs. If you are afraid of heights, hike with extreme caution. Beautiful views of Leavenworth and the Enchantments.

Gorgeous trail with beautiful wild flowers. About 4 miles up hill and 4 miles back.

It was a beautiful day. Great weather . It is quite a hike if you aren't expecting the climb. But we totally enjoyed it and would do it again!

This was my first hike ever! Absolutely amazing

Lovely trail. Wildflower were in abundance, and very fragrant. Met Mr. Sauer himself back at the parking lot. Very friendly and knowledgable fellow. Lots of energy for an 86 year old! Trail was not too busy, but we were there on a Friday just before 9:00 am. Took the main trail, and got to the top in about 1 hr and 5 min. Very similar time coming back down, as there are some sandy sections.

Beautiful trail all the way to the top. This trail doesn't lack at all on the wildflowers. My friend and I were out there on May 6th, we saw Marmots, deer, salamandars, chipmunks, butterflies, and a woodpecker. The trail is beautifully maintained, but is very narrow, if your afraid of heights this might not be the trail for you. There isn't much shelter from the sun so you may want to pack sunscreen, and sunglasses, and bring extra water. I thought it was an easy trail, if your not use to a lot of elevation or don't like elevation, this could be moderate to strenuous for you.

Absolutely breathtaking with the wild spring flowers.

Fun hike and got to talk with the man this is named after! 86 years young and still out cutting trail@

Fun hike...and moderate is a good rating. If heights really bother you, this will be challenging as there are several stretches where the trail is VERY narrow and on the side of a very steep, very long grade. Falling at that point would result in a fast, long slide...most likely ending badly. But the hike is fun and views at the top and along the way are great. April is a good time to go.

Great hike! Perfect 3hours to spend on a nice day.

Very solid. Short and steep with nice views. A slow run up but a fast and fun descent. Perfect for a late March mountain trail while the others nearby are still covered in snow. No snow here.

A great day to be outdoors! Such a beautiful place

We went on a special trip through Sound Excursions to go white water rafting and to eat dinner in Leavenworth. Transportation was provided from downtown Seattle to the river, then from the river to Leavenworth, and back to Seattle. The white water rafting was a ton of fun! It was terribly hot, but the river was cool and refreshing. Our tour guides were very helpful and made the experience a lot of fun!
