Amazing fall hike. The ecosystems change with the elevation and the creeks are so clear you can see the rainbow trout hunting for food. I probably won't camp on Mt. Sterling again due to the fierce wind we faced all night. But on a calmer night, I can see how it would be perfect.

Side not: zero cell service along the entire 20 miles hike

This trail was beautiful. Water was beside us the whole hike up. Not to steep. Lots of stones on path that tripped you up most of the time, so you need to wear good shoes. But overall, we would do it again. Loved it!!!!

Nice and easy hike. Trail is shared with horses so there's big globs of horse excrement scattered along the path, watch your step. There were a lot of families with kids (probably because it's e z p z). It's a nice deep swimming hole with a 10ft rock to jump off of. Really clear and cool water. Take your old and young folks here for a nice little day hike.

Most important thing is multiple foot bridges were down and u have to walk in the water from ankle deep to just below waist. We took our boots off so we didn't have to hike with them wet. We didn't mind it cause it made the trail better. When you get to the trail head go left it's not challenging I would rate it easy but around half way if gets strenuously em easy again. My gps said it was 7.5 miles from the p-lot and back. There are multiple large trees and some views which are amazing. We saw a moose, snake, birds, multiple mushrooms and insects. We saw the stone walls but missed the cabin house. I'd recommend this trail but your going to get wet.
