Beautiful trail. Was definitely worth the effort. Probably the most beautiful trail I've ever done. We also hiked to Island lake which was also amazing. If you hike to Island Lake be prepared for a tough hike, was a bit dangerous in a few spots. My wife and I hiked around the whole lake, even though there is no trail around Island lake. Will try to hike to Fuller Lake next time around.
Easy for a 14er peak, but everyone knows there is no easy 14er!!! Loved the slow start through the woods, once you get into the meadows the trail really starts to climb up to the summit. Crowded the entire way, with humans and mountain goats, both will charge, you have been warned. My total time hiking was less than 4 hours and only took 2 hours to summit. Remember, you are hiking in the Rocky Mountain's, so the trails typically are rocky ((KRISTIN))
very nice hike with great views... we missed the foliage but must be spectacular (and crowded) early in the season. you can run on most of this trail... and also a very nice hike for a wide range of abilities. our roundtrip clocked in at a bit over 5 miles.our dachschund was able to negotiate all but the final few meters of the hike. check out the pictures for the views from the top.
This trail is not for the faint of heart if you're riding a horse. Trailhead does not allow horses so don't follow the directions to this one. Mesa Trail that leads to Bear Canyon Trail is fairly easy to travel but still challenging Bear Canyon Trail has a very challenging parts and some very scary parts. Trail is incredibly beautiful though a lot of it is in the trees with great views.
We actually hiked to Elk Falls (not in AllTrails) which was 12 miles out and back. It was pretty easy hike, we even took my 9 yr old with no complaints! Started around 10am, finished at 530pm not very busy at all. Saw 3 coyotes on the road on the way up and tons of mule deer along the trail. We did get hailed on, had to hide under some trees, but the waterfall was beautiful. Volunteers did drive by twice during our hike. Great biking trails also!
This trail is very very rocky! It's pretty much a scramble all the way up. I guess I'd say about 1mile in thats wooded and then it becomes rocks. Makes the trail much more difficult. I hiked on Saturday morning and the weather was great. A little snow up top which became slush on our way down. Made it harder to get down bc of the rocks and slush you were just skidding. It took us about 2.5 hrs to summit and almost the same to get down. The view was amazing and very glad I did it. But because of the rocks I would not do it again. My dog did very well though and it was not very busy. Best part was going into Breckenridge after and eating at Flip Side! Great beers and truffle fries are a must! If you are ok with a scramble check it out, if not steer clear!
