    The first few miles of this hike are relatively easy as the trail meanders up Loy Canyon. About a mile in, there are some small ruins a ways up the side of the canyon on the left. The climb out of the canyon is certainly steep and strenuous, but as the guidebook suggests, the views are worth it. When the Loy Canyon trail intersects the Secret Mountain trail, the terrain shifted to pine forest and we tried to ascend Secret Mountain via the trail, rather than proceeding to the Secret Mountain Trailhead as the book suggests. The trail became fairly steep, and patches of snow and downed trees made the trail difficult with leashed dogs, so we turned back.
