Only hiked half of the Solitaire trail. Found the trail easy to follow and good for out of shape persons like us. Nice breeze off the lake. Well maintained. Will return.

No matter what season, this is always a great place to visit. Beautiful trails. Just what the doctor ordered after a stressful week at the office.

Probably, but they will know you are there before you know they are there. If you are talking, or making noise, they will avoid you, enjoy your hike.
