We hiked the first quarter mile then shoed up, and we were glad we did. The signs were much improved from our last visit!

This is a fun trail. Hunter Thompson in the past blocked the trail, and hikers had to loop around his property. It is a scenic walk by rivers and meadows.

Slip on your hiking shoes and take off! This hike was so enjoyable. We started from Aspen, at the base. We hiked through the woods, crossing several bridges and in awe at the natural beauty of this trail. Not super challenging, but a great exercise to the top nonetheless. The hunter creek valley has an abandoned shack and horse stable... More

I love the trail as you get to hike in the woods and keep crossing the creek. Once you are on top it opens up to meadow. The dwarfed little Aspen trees up there are so cute that one can imagine fairies live there

Up the road from town and super picturesque. I highly recommend going for a stroll. You can walk this trial anytime of the year even when there is snow! Perfect if you have snow shoes!

Wonderful hike, views are beautiful along the way but once you are at the top of the trail, they are spectacular, especially in the fall!

This is one of the best hikes we have had in a long time. The trail is mostly easy and passes through some heavy forest along the creek with several bridge crossings. There are scattered large rocks that require walking in a steady zig-zag fashion. We stopped repeatedly along the way to take pictures of the creek as it roared... More

This hike was fantastic for our group of girls - none of us were avid hikers and one of the girls who did it was actually seven months pregnant. It feels like a "real" hike (rocky trails vs. a paved path) but it is very doable. I recommend following some of the little offshoots or small dirt paths to find... More

Nice hike, following the Hunter Creek, which the trail crosses several times. We went in about a mile, then returned to town. We didn't encounter any bugs (i.e., mosquitos) even though the trail was kind of dark and damp in some places. Trail was pretty easy to traverse, with about average rockiness (not too much loose rock). The highlight, as... More
