Lovely- good descent in- and out - lovely views- we didn't go all the way to the campgrounds. Lots of aspens.

Gorgeous fall colors & panoramic views

We LOVED this trail! Coming from Ohio, the elevation was challenging for us. An easy Colorado trail is equivalent to a moderate to difficult trail back home. The fall colors were amazing, no picture could ever do it justice, you MUST see this place in the fall!! Quite a few people with dogs off leash, but they were all friendly and minded their owners so no issues there. I could spend all day here!

Loved this trail. Kid friendly (our 3.5 year old mainly rode in the carrier). Pretty views, pretty aspens. Rocky terrain, but not too bad.

Trail drops down 1000 ft into a valley with a beautiful stream. Walk along the stream for about a mile or two through a beautiful meadow. However, it then takes you up about 500 ft and doesn't seem to return to the water, though some cool overlooks along the way. The estimated distance was 5 miles, but the trail goes quite a ways beyond what is marked on alltrails. It was an 8 mile round trip for me via my apple watch and I didn't even go to the end of the trail. Would recommend stopping shortly after you leave the meadow. Wear pants because of the brush and bring backup bug spray depending on time of year and time of day.

Amazing views. Hikes through Birch tree groves. The river is spectacular and wild raspberries are your reward if you go all the way to the end of the trail (according to this map).
