We hiked from Longmire to Van Trump Park. While longer and more elevation gain than hiking from the Comet Falls trailhead the reward is solitude. While on the Van Trump Park trail, we saw 1 person between the the turnoff for Mildred Point and the Wonderland trail! Saw nobody on our way up and passed only 1 person on the way down. We did encounter a few people between that Mildred Point junction and Van Trump Park but it never felt crowded -- saw way fewer people than you do an on an average I-90 hike. Surprising given it was a weekend and gorgeous weather but we're not complaining. Views were great. Wildflowers are out in Van Trump Park and on the connector between its turnoff and the Mildred Point turnoff. The wind kept the bugs at bay for the most part in Van Trump Park so we enjoyed a leisurely lunch. A long but rewarding day on the trail. Our GPS clocked this route at 10.5 miles and just under 3,500 ft elevation gain.
