    This hike was my first hike ever. It was indeed a difficult trail. Once you reached it, a good sigh of relief that you have seen how beautiful it is. Not for the faint of heart though.

    Great hike with moderate vertical, nice creek and high ridge-line with great views.

    This is a very nicely maintained loop trail with several bridges and creeks to cross. Traveling clockwise gets a considerable elevation gain completed early while adding the Viewpoint trail near the mid-point gets hikers a great vista of Lake Chapman and helps achieve a “destination” aspect to the loop hike. With the Viewpoint side trip, the hike ends up being approximately 7 miles with an overall elevation gain of roughly 1800 feet. Look for a troll under one of the bridges in the loop in order to add interest for little hikers. Overall this hike is a very enjoyable trip through the woods with nice visual elements along the way.

    This is a surprisingly nice little hike. The rushing creeks and small waterfalls at the top of the hike are the highlight.

    Christmas day hike 2018. Stopped raining as we got to the trail about 8:30 am. Trail clockwise has a 2 small trees over trail, easy to step over. We started up to the look out, patchy snow then at the 5th switchback consistent 1-2" of trampled snow, this is the old logging road so easy to navigate. We turned around at the arrow sign as micro spikes would be best from there on up. Coming down there were more trees down, easy to scramble over, about 7 more trees. All in all a good hike to get the heart rate up and breath some clean air. Saw a Cushman security truck pass by the parking lot. Only one car when we started and 3 when we returned. I recommend water proof shoes, hiking poles, gaiters and 10 essentials. Always be prepared for rain and layer up. We hiked almost 6 miles, moving time 3.10, average speed 25 mph. You make up time on the way down:) Good half day hike and dogs are allowed.

    Closed in by weather and fresh snow above 4000 ft. Good trail conditions except slippery above the snowline where snow remained on the trail.
