Nice trail, we started out on Meadow View and missed the first sign for Bergan Peak Trail so we added about 3.8 miles on to our hike. The sign is clearly visible coming back down, but is facing away from you going up, this is probably a rookie error.
Wonderful hike nearby Denver!
Gorgeous views, we hiked up in July and could still see on the mountains across.

Moderately strenuous hike due to overall length and vertical gain. The number of switchbacks can be demoralizing. Great primer for gauging alpine hike readiness. Views are often obstructed by forest (primarily lodgepole pine & occasional aspen). Summit sign is located off the end of the trail near the transmission tower. Trail has a decent amount of mountain bike traffic between Too Long and Meadow View Trails.
Beautiful views, definitely quite moderate. The incline is steady but gradual and is very doable.
