From trailhead, the first 1/2 mile is a little steep but the hundreds of columbines keep you moving! Once you get past there, the view of Mummy Ridge is great. You will go through several meadows full of wild flowers! We stopped just before the footbridge at 5+ miles because heavy thunderstorms were moving in (around 1:30pm). If you are into the possible calorie burn, I hit 1221 for a three hour hike (5'10", 172 lbs.). May seem a little wierd, but I like hiking not only for the scenery, but for the calorie burn!
