very nice hike, 5 stars for the views, 4 stars for the trail which is barely/not visible on the last few hundred meters. it took us appr. 2.5 hours to get to the top and 2 hours back down. avoid thunderstorms, the weather changes very rapidly. we started at 8am and blue sky, 4 hours later it rained.

Great diversity in terrain. Saw elk, wildflowers and amazing views. Started at Lake Poudre, stay on main path towards right top where it splits.

Started this hike around 8am - The trail was easy to find, even in the boulder field. No snow right now except for a small bank right before you leave treeline, which can easily be sidestepped. Extremely windy and steep at parts but absolutely gorgeous! Definitely worth it. Note: When you reach a fork in the trail around 2.5 miles in, bear right. The cairn is missing.
