Wonderful loop trail that leads you down/up a drainage passing meadows, mixed forest and historic cabins. Gently incline with views of pikes peak. Snow on almost every section of trail that was shaded. Didn’t see a single person resulting in a wonderful wilderness walk. Saw no wildlife but you can tell animals frequent the area. Overall, a great short day hike and can be combined with several other trails in the monument.
