Loved this trail! Inbound is all uphill but definitely doable at your own pace! There is significant amount of "horse apples" on this trail. We arrived and parked at Lily Lake around 8am on a Friday morning and there was plenty of parking (plus you don't have to pay RMNP entrance fee). Great way to get to Estes Cone! If going up to Estes Cone look for the cairns on the way up and bring a jacket!
Great hike. Good steady climb. Used this trail to meet up with the Estes Cone.
2 stars for the one mile portion of this trail between Bear Lake Rd and Sprague Lake. Nothing special with lots of horse poo.
Trail was used very lightly the day I was there. Offered some great views and since I went there in mid September, there were sections where you can see beautiful fall colors.
It was a great trail saw a moose there.
