This was a beautiful hike- very quiet and peaceful. Crossed the stream several times (although Ghost-busters say you should not), I lost my balance at one point and my right foot landed in the water. Lots of fun and great photo opportunities :)

Hiked this with my boys 8 & 10. Loved it. A few areas of steep incline and rough footing but that makes it more fun. Easy hike, one of my favs in the area. Great jog for the more advanced.

My friend and I only did Mt Democrat. It was our third 14er and it was fairly easy to get to the top since it's a shorter hike. However, we both had a really hard time coming down since the trail went through loose rock (both large and small) and slick dirt the entire way down! We did not have hiking poles and they probably would have been very helpful. The difficulty in descending was why we didn't continue on to the other peaks as we had planned to. Also, be aware that the road to get to the trailhead at Kite Lake is in very poor condition and even my all wheel drive Subaru almost got stuck.

I loved this hike! I enjoy any sort of hike that has good coverage from the sun, and this trail provides tree coverage about 95% of the way.

As others have said, the trails can get a little confusing as signage isn't always very clear. I started out at the Chavez trailhead and came to the sign indicating 6 miles to Windy Saddle if I turned right, and 1.5 miles to another trailhead if I took the left.
I followed the sign to the left and conveniently this trail did loop me back around almost to the Chavez trailhead where I started. You come out at an open area with restrooms, and if you follow the gravel road up, you will turn right and end up at the Chavez trailhead/parking area.
