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.
