  • Magnificent spot for people of all ages and skill level. If you don't like a great variety of trails, views and cool people... Don't go here...he he he.
  • I love this place, i came today,july 4 with my daughters it is our 5 or 6 time coming,and my boyfriend 1st time and there was many people,young people smoking weed and one of the girls and one boy were peeing there close to the group,they didn't even go to hide or something, they also left trash i was sad to see this and we don't plan to go back again.
  • Short hike that's worth visiting multiple times throughout the year to see how it changes with the seasons. Good places to explore once you're at the top. Great place to bring visitors from out of town!
  • Wow! What a great day. The hike was no too bad and we are still getting used to going up that elevation. The view was worth it. Lake was frozen and fun to walk across. Met great people and pups.
  • Saint Mary's was a moderate hike that any traveler in the area should see. So beautiful and worth the climb!
