this Trail was fun! it was a gradual incline with good length to it, nothing too hard. it is also a very moist Trail, a lot of the time plants and trees were closing in on me and I saw a great variety of mushrooms out and back. we only ran into two other hikers the entire time we were there. it took 6hours to hike 8.5 miles. the trail ends at a dirt road but we kept walking and stumbled into a geocache gamepiece while offtrailing. I would recommend it to anyone looking for good length and a mixup of scenery

Stunning as always. Bring bug spray!! Not a good trail for beginners, it's a little on the high moderate-strenuous side in several spots. Also bring a hoodie for the lake, it can get pretty cold and windy but it's SO WORTH IT!!

Absolutely stunning hike. The drive in is a little longer than you might expect as the last 5 miles are on rather bumpy dirt road. Whether it requires a raised vehicle probably depends on how much you care about your car. We took our truck and were glad. Parking is an utter beatdown in mid-summer if you don't get there early so...get there early, like by 7 or 8. We got there at ten and just finding parking took 45 mins.

This hike is very rocky, but no climbing. Dress appropriately. It was very windy once you hike above the tree line. But all in all a great hike with beautiful views.

This is a gorgeous hike! We did it last weekend and we saw a MOOSE only one mile in from the trailhead!

One of the most scenic hikes in Colorado. Be prepared by bringing either $11 in cash or check. Had to park at the day use parking lot which added approx .75miles each way to the overall hike. Lots of gusty winds at the top so bring your jacket and gloves. Very nice hike
