We drove to the coordinates and couldn't find any sign of the trail. There's a nordic training area nearby so something probably exists for skiiers in winter (the sign said no hikers).

So many good views. The trail is easy to follow and not obscured. Moderate and gentle inclines/declines. You pass a good amount of water so if you can treat it, you don't need to pack it in. Plenty of places for camping.

Insane views the entire hike. Distance is more like ~12.5 miles one way.

We were going to attempt this hike in June of 2017, but signs indicated "no foot traffic allowed" Nordic skiing only.

Beautiful loop heading to the summit of Fremont peak. The trail highlights dozens of stunning views. Perfect for a 3 or 4 days hike.

Our Family has been camping at New Fork for as long as I can remember. It is great to see that I can now add one of my favorite trails to my list. The trailhead from the upper parking lot is where most start, but there is one from the camp ground that merges together about a mile later. I used the campground trail. A lot of get spots to stop and camp along this trail. A great trail to take if you are looking for a 3 day pack.

Great place to use as a base camp to explore/climb Titcomb Basin, Indian Pass or climb some of the surrounding peaks.

I combined this trail along with the old High-line trail now the Continental Divide trail for a long loop out from the Boulder Creek Trail-head.

Covered this trail early in the season on the way to Cook Lakes back in 1981 . Because of high water just past Pole Creek Lake we didn't dare cross Pole Creek. While we were deciding a couple of horses crossed and the water was up past their bellies. That decided it for us so we followed the river for about a mile before we could cross and continue to Cook Lakes.

This is an amazing loop passing many beautiful lakes with great view of the mountains along the continental divide. Take your time and spent 5 days. Be sure to stop at the Big Drop slide near the Freemont river crossing
