Good trail for the dogs, lots of water for them to play in as you hike along a nice flowing creek most of the way!

We didn't really know what we were getting into with the stream crossings and all, however, the mental and physical challenge was refreshing. Highly recommend especially if you have dogs that love water. Ours were in heaven.

Great Hike, not super crowded which was awesome. Only down side was that there were several stream crossings that were a bit difficult, especially with a dog who hates water. Other than that it was lovely. I would also not recommend this hike if you have a dog who is not well trained on the leash. There are several parts that get super narrow and slippery. If you have a dog that tugs a lot you could easily fall about 20 feet to your doom.

There's a patch of snow/ice at the beginning as of today, but other than that it's totally dry. I really enjoyed this trail!

Started at the lookout mountain trail head that turned into the BB the loop starts about 3.5 miles into the trail and the trail is pretty hard but a great hike none the less it just took a lot longer then expected

Great trail. Went there this weekend and there was about 2 feet of snow. Hard to walk and find the trail in some places but would defiantly. This trail is more like moderate or expert in the snow

Great hike! The return hike felt like a drunk person tried to cross the creek as many times as possible. So much fun!

Very icy and moderately snowy. The stream was almost completely iced over. Beautiful winter hike. There are enough steep parts to get your heart pumping. Not recommended for small children. Some very steep and narrow parts.

Fantastic trail! Is a little steep towards the end so if you plan on hiking this trail in the winter dress accordingly.
