cuts in and out of the road a lot is pretty steep at the beginning cool view at the cross and picnic table at top
Had a great time, went with my dog I could definitely make this a regular hike
Great trail close by and you have the option to run or walk which is great for training! Family friendly.
The beginning of the actual hiking trail was strenuously steep. Taking the gravel road is much easier but we alternate. Great views and fun hike.
Great hike with beautiful views of Glenwood Springs. Nice dirt road.
Great hike with the kids!
five stars for the view. Its actually a tough hike. All up hill. Take the road or the trail to the top to the cross. Winter time bring a sled to slide down after snow shoeing up.
Wow! Amazing hike! Great views of Glenwood and Carbondale. The road is icy in the winter but that doesn't stop anyone from hiking it! If you try, make sure you have some sort of traction device on your shoes (like Yaktrax) and ski poles help too. Climing 1700' feet in elevation is intense, so bring lots of water and don't be afraid to stop if you need a break.
great hike, finding trail head, tricky. Views of the valley are very nice. Option of crisscrossing the road on marked trails really add to the experience.
