I like how the road to the parking lot is gravel right off the bat, and the parking lot is mud. You have to ride over a little bridge that is over a creek that connects two remote ponds to get to the start of the trail, and wabam! Immediately you start a long climb up the trail, which never ends pretty much, but when you start to go downhill, hold on to those brakes or you'll be a goner! The trail is full of rocks/ boulders, trees, little trenches from small creeks, and what I've counted, tree extra large bluffs not even a foot away from the trail, which don't even have fences to protect you from falling, and it has a lot of switchbacks. There are four emergency roads that connect the trail to the main road, which is a 1/2 a mile away at some points, that allow you to meet up with ambulances if you get hurt, or to just be picked up by someone else to get back to camp. Highly recommend this trail, and even though it says its easy to bike, it is NOT.

We hiked this trail in December 2014, shortly after Christmas. There wasn't any snow, but it was brisk. The upside was the trail was serene and we didn't pass any other hikers! It really is a pretty trail, and it was cool to see the furnaces. We walked back along the highway to make this a loop. There's a nice cluster of trails in this park, and we checked out several others, though this was our favorite.

I went with my dog the day it snowed really hard in January! It was almost a blizzard when we got there, we hiked for 2 hours and by the time we started heading back the sun was out. Such a beautiful day! I shared some snowy photos!

Muddy trails in February. Missed a turn on the way back and was temporarily lost. Love the app. Kept me from being completely lost. Beautiful hike. Even in winter.

I grew up running these trails this is one of many great and interesting running routes. If you are lucky you will see the Beaver's out along the lake. Very family friendly.
