Views were amazing! Had witness to an unreal inversion! Worth the final scramble to the true summit!

Amazing hike! Complete the loop solo starting from the right side. Not as much scrambling as I was thinking. Get views at summit and amazing ridge line to walk if you to the Loop.

It's Amazing day hike, the section from abandoned helipad to the summit is serious scramble and not a marked trail as such, otherwise the other sections are well marked and defined. It's windy up there and lots of loose rock , helmet and poles recommended!

Nice and easy walk.
Thanks David and Julie for showing us this one

First Hike ever and I must say, it was taxing but none the less an experience. Viewed much wildlife on the ascent, big horned sheep and what I believe to be grouse. Will be returning soon

What a beautiful hike! It is very "uphill"!!
Views are spectacular. When you get closer to the top it's very rocky. Didn't make it to the summit today but might have to go back some day! It looked very challenging but amazing!! We are so very fortunate to live where we live!!

Great Rocky Mountain hike. Steep gains on the way up will get your cardio up for sure. The direct summit routes can be hard to stay too as not a lot of traffic. I climbed it on a weekend and saw one other party on the summit ridge. Passed goats on the way up at close proximity. All and all a great hike. Choose your route on descent with care. I ran into two technical sections that i had bypassed on the ascent.
