This is a beautiful place full of wild flowers, open rolling plains and hills surrounded by mountains. It was a sunny day in June with a constant refreshing breeze. We did the strenuous hike to the peak and were a bit let down just because there wasn’t a great view. However, the views are spectacular the whole way down the loop trial. This trail is more about the journey as opposed to a grand finale reward. The path seemed geared towards bikers for the most part but is still easily hiked

Brilliant wildflowers!

Beautiful trail, well maintained, clearly marked. Mostly shaded, plenty open mountain meadows to spot flowers, and what a beautiful lake at the end.

Hiked this trail to high point on June 3. Still spectacular with lots of water and waterfalls. Snow in upper basin still present but clearing and not a trail obstacle.

Great trails and beautiful sunset point view!

Very scenic and it does not take you long to experience solitude.

Moderate hike with great views at the top. Park in town near third street and walk from there (approximately 1/2 mile walk to trail head). Cannot park at the trail head because it is private property, all the more reason to grab a beer in town as you walk back to your car. Cutthroat abound in Green Lake, so hike with a fishing pole if you'd like. Very dog friendly with numerous water spots for your dog to cool off along the way.

Wow! We went in May and some of the rivers were very tough to cross (forcing others to turn around or go of course) and there was too much snow at the end to finish... but how amazing to hike and camp totally on our own! Didn’t see another human soul the entire hike down on day 2. Saw some deer and marmots. Really enjoyed the drive in Gothic Road from Crested Butte as well. We will be back for the Aspens changing!

initial climb is ridiculous! The rest of the hike was nice. not much to enjoy walking back on the roadway. But no way that we would down the vertical section.

great trail And the falls are beautiful.

Great longer hike with beautiful views. Longer than 8 miles. The last 2 miles are really exposed and sometimes the wind can really kick up. Mountain bikers were friendly. Our dog loved the trail.

By no means is this an off road trail. This is a scenic drive.

Took the left fork of the trail just under the the 1.3 miles make which lead to the top the mountain but not the view point that I really wanted to see. Should have taken the right fork but didn't find that our until I met another hiker on the way back. Nice views just not the one that I thought.

Closed due to heavy run off. No parking at trail head

Don't waste your time. Out in the open and exposed to the sun and heat. Views are no better than those while driving the road. Could be useful for someone acclimating to the altitude. May be pretty in autumn when the leaves change, but there are better hikes for that.

Great paved trail loop bike path.

25 miles in and out? or just 25 miles straight in and 25 miles back??

Wanted to jump in lake it was beautiful

As of Cinco De Mayo 2018, the trail is still closed due to snow- for up to date information, you can send message via Facebook; look up St Elmo General Store.

Lovely, relaxing walk right outside my backdoor pretty much! Great for biking as well. Worth experiencing during a full moon!

This trial is remarkable! I have been up here 4 times over the past decade and each time is better than the last. The trial doesn’t start off a highway, you need a good 4X4 vehicle to head up to the trial head. I highly recommend this trail to anyone seeking secluded Colorado beauty.

Cute little place!! Awesome mini waterfall to the right after you cross the river where you can slide off a naturally made rock slide and jump off a little cluster of rocks!

This is a really nice trail, it's out of the way so there's not much traffic.

Some parts are fairly steep and parts were somewhat grown over in late summer, there was running water in September still, good for a pet or if you need to refill with a filter.

Hiked on 11/04/17. No parking where All Trails begins. Have to park at the Brush Creek TH 1 mile prior. So add 2 miles RT. Some snow, rain, fog, and a little sun made for a very pleasant November walk in the woods. Never saw another person! Didn't know there'd be splendid views of Teocali, as it was too foggy in the morning to realize it should be visible from the parking lot. But near the end of the big descent, the weather cleared and the peak showed itself. Magical! Would recommend this hike in the winter, but wouldn't waste a Summer day in CB doing measly little this one. Besides, in the Summer it's probably crowded by bikers.

I could explore this place for months and still not see everything. It's quite a climb, but the views are incredible!

went to the falls then kept going to the end.

Started from the Hartman’s parking lot and reached Aberdeen Quarry, then crossed the stream and got into the nice single track of the Aberdeen Loop, which was my final destination today. Used the double track roads to go home quickly and easily after the long ride. This route goes deep in HR but enjoyable! Make sure you have enough water to go this much far.

Just gorgeous, and ends at a truly spectacular overlook. However, wouldn't call it "hard" ~ more like moderate.

Beautiful drive!
