Hiked Ragged Mt. 03/16 Very strenuous hike d/t deep snow. Climbing ragged Mt from South face not to bad, minimal ice on the blue trail through the crevice. Trail was beautiful lots of small streams d/t snow melt! Saw three coyotes when standing atop the ragged ridge! Would recommend snow shoes for the next couple of weeks wish I had had mine. PS if anyone finds a bright pink jacket w keys on the trail unfortunately they are mine.

This made for a good workout for my first day back out after a lazy winter. Trail today (3-17-15) was packed to loose snow and ice. I imagine this would make for a nice quick loop in spring and summer with some nice views of the valley below. I'll definitely come back in fall to see the views then, I'm sure it'll beat the foggy grey day today.

I used to live right across the street in the condos. I used to walk this trail a few times a week. It's a great spot to get near the river and enjoy some quiet. This was almost 10 years ago now, and at the time it wasn't very crowded. Not to many people seemed to know about it. If you want a nice easy walk on a week night this is a great trail.

Lots of trails around the lake some are old roads from back in the day. Orange trails lead up river on both sides and are a bit more challenging to hike or bike. Round trip from lake on one side up to Red Bridge road and back on other side about 8 miles. Many options all around the area to explore.

Love the hike up the waterfall and yes it is steep literally a stone staircase for much of the first quarter mile and boulders after that to the top of the falls once you get to top of the falls it is not so bad, There are two overlooks off this hike.
