ramsey cascades trail

We were just wondering at a steady pace about how long would it take to hike to the cascades and back down?

My family is going on this trail on our camping trip and everywhere i've looked says around four hours.

That depends what your steady pace is, though four seems like a good rough estimate. A good rule of thumb for those who don't know their speed is "length of trail (in miles)/2 = hours needed". It's good to measure how fast you go when hiking so you can predict how long other trails will take you in the future.

Ramsey is a great hike, enjoy. Be sure not just walk by the giant poplar about a quarter to halfway up; that thing is worth some time being gazed upon. I'm not sure if it's a champion tree, but it sure is big.
