Beautiful hike. Trail is very rutted from quad use. Lots of open range cows that like to charge your dog, so be careful. Otherwise it's a great hike!
This is a great hike for a beginner who wants a challenge. The climb can get your heart pumping. The views of Boulder are great. Bring snow gear in the spring/early summer.
