Beautiful hike. more difficult than I anticipated with a lot of scrambling over rocks. loved it and definitely will do it again.
PROS: Beautiful trail. Steep incline. Awesome views from the top.
CONS: Limited parking.
Good work out and solid views at the end. The ascent once you're in the canyon is very challenging for inexperienced hikers.
When u actually get up to canyon if your there during the "magic hour" beauty. Plus 2 abandoned cabins along the way
It was brutal. We climbed to Bear Peak. Worth the view!
Gorgeous hike, tons of wildflowers, streams and of course, the Flatirons to keep you going. Only qualm of course is the search for parking.
