I hiked 4.1 miles of the Dante Trail in Purgatory Creek today, from south to north. Water on trail from recent rains made things difficult. Trail along creek is under water in one loaction, so hikers must deviate from established trail. The trail is NOT well marked. GPS essential. Sharp rocks most of the way, so watch your step. Beautiful trees and a gorgeous field of wildflowers almost shoulder high to me. Some parts of trail closed due to Golden Warbler nesting.

beautiful views of Colorado River

The main trail down the hill to the river trail is pretty steep. The overlook point is beautiful.

nice trails

Most of the trails are very well maintained and easy. The Caddy trail was pretty rough and not maintined like the others. Lots of evidence of wild hogs.

swampy except around campgrounds
