Attempted to climb this today. Made it about 3 miles up and chickened out once the blizzard came in. It was very windy and the snow blowing into my face was slightly painful. The hike would've been doable if the weather was more favorable. I will definitely try to summit next time when the weather is better. There was another guy who was a beast who ran past me going up and ran past me going down. I give props to him.
Beautiful hike, gets pretty rocky but it's well worth it.
great sunrise hike!
Great trail. We hiked it in early October and it was comfortably warm at the bottom and crisp at the top. Nothing overly technical or difficult, though the shortened switchbacks by the washed out area of the trail are relatively steep. It's a great trail for folks like us, Midwesterners who are in pretty good shape but don't have the time/gear/acclimation to tackle one of the more technical peaks. Round trip it took us 5 hours on the dot, with plenty of breaks for pictures and snacks.
The only crappy part was walking through that mudslide area. But other than that great hike. Great views at the top
Great hike to see the colors and Longs Peak.
Great 360 view at the top, some parts of the trail are still washed out from the flood and are difficult to follow.
Great hike, alot of climbing but the views at the top are totally worth it!
Great hike with rewarding views. It gets a little tricky where the 2013 floods washed away the trail but you can figure it out of you look closely.
Very steep and mostly spent in a pine forest until you're almost at the top. There are some openings along the way but with all of the wonderful choices in this area I would put this at the end of the list.
