Trail 1013 is steep with awesome views and joins Trail 931 at about 2 miles This can be a hike to Table Rock which is about 1.5 miles up the trail. There is a sign alonside the trail, a real nice place for a picnic. Or you can access trail 931 which is about 2 miles up the hill; and go to Glen Haven and walk back to your vehicle on CR 43. Or continue up the hill till you reach the summit of Crosier Mtn. Or Continue on trail 931 and exiting at the Garden Gate Trailhead (Drake) In order to do the last suggestion, have two vehicles and park one at the Garden Gate Trail Head (Drake). Good maps for the hike are from Trails Illustrated #101 Cache La Poudre-Big Thompson

Took the family (9 yo and 13 yo + dog) on this hike and went to the intersection with the 931 trail. A few peek-a-boo views on the way up were nice. Stopped at Table Rock for lunch which was great. Then continued on to the trail intersection, which wasn't quite worth the effort. I'd say if you aren't going all the way to the top Table Rock is the right turnaround.

Not sure I would do this hike again however. I think it should probably be rated Moderate rather than Easy. It was uphill and often steep the whole way in.

The trail head is a little less than pleasant too. Construction trailer and portable potty didn't inspire our wilderness intentions. Minor detail overall, but we noticed.
