This trail has it all... trees, cliffs, water, camping, scrambling to the top. It’s a great one for year-round fun.

Beautiful wildflowers and follows a very pretty stream. Fun stream crossings. Highlight- saw a bear & two cubs off the trail.

Nice trail. Nice landscape with trees and stream. We did the loop at the end and back down to make it a bit more challenging. Only downside of that section of the trail is the fact that it is an off-road trail and there were a lot of Jeeps on the trail on Memorial Day.

Great trail! Goes along a dirt road for a while, but only saw one car and zero hikers the entire time. All the elevation gain is at one spot and steep but comes with a rewarding view at the top.

Currently closed due to covid. Local traffic only. Forest ranger was checking IDs and turning non-locals away. Maybe next time....

Beautiful trail with 360 views of the mountains at the top. Not a single soul once we branched off from the Switzerland trail and up the mountain, even on Memorial Day! Route finding can be hard once you pass the “no motorized vehicles” sign, so make sure you download the trail so you don’t get lost. We saw two moose and broken down structures from the early 90s.

Definitely wouldn’t rate this as a difficult hike until the last 1 mile stretch, otherwise it’s pretty moderate. Started at 11am and we’re back to the car by 3pm! We thought it was going to be muddy because of all the rain yesterday, but we had no issues! It was sunny at first with a 20% of rain... so shorts and a tank were nice, but the clouds covered and even snowed a bit when we were at the top! So definitely pack a couple layers if there’s any chance of precipitation. Otherwise, beautiful views of Rocky, & definitely would do again!

BEAUTIFUL!! Only saw 1 spider web/nest. Great hike! Not super hard. Flowers blooming. Dog friendly

Beautiful memorial day! Not too crowded if you start early (we started at 730). Did this trail before sightseeing the Stanley Hotel. Don’t stop until you get to the top or else you’re just wasting your time haha.

Unbelievably pretty this time of year. I loved the shaded parts that made me feel like I was in the PNW. As we got further, there were a few awkward stream crossings that we decided to just walk through.

Please be aware that parking is very limited at the trailhead. If the parking area is full, it is NOT OK to park on the residential streets. Try another time.

We went on a rainy day, so their was minimum traffic. Recording our hike helped keep us on track. It’s easy to loose track of the trail.

The road upto panorama peak is closed for some reason. Great for a sunset mtb experience. There was a humvee on the trail today but easily visible. Trail is dry & watch out for some steep portions. As others have said, the route isn’t completely accurate but easy to figure out. Cheers

Super fun trail!!! Gradual incline, very easy hike. Water crossings with large logs above the water freak me out, so I choose to cross in the river, cool refreshing water. Wild flowers galore.

Like other reviews said - the first section is most difficult, after that it’s really enjoyable! Gate was still closed, so there was no vehicle traffic along the service road which made it perfect for a casual hike. 3-4 stream crossings which was nice for the pup to get some water.

Great trail--gradual climb. Aspens just leafing out. Stream along side most of the trail is a great bonus.

It was a great trail!! Very easy going, not to strenuous. Perfect for families and the bridges they have put in make it easier than I thought. The views are great with so many flowers and greenery to enjoy.

This was a great, mostly flat trail with scenic views. Trail is 8 miles, not 6. Lots of mountain bikers, but had some nice stretches without seeing anyone.

Still a bit of snow on the trail. Most people were turning back after a couple miles. It’s a bit of a tougher hike with the snow, but very doable for experienced hikers.

Entire loop is closer to 8mi. Ended up here given the madness on Lost Lake Trail. Would not recommend to hikers. Good spot for easy mountain biking terrain.

Awesome trail! A little sketchy with the rocks but I’m a major rookie on a bike - super fun :and happy I didn’t eat it Hahahaha

The scenery off the trail was nice however, hiking on a 4x4 dirt road just isn't for me. We attempted to stay on the downloaded route at one point and there was somewhat of a clearing through a gate but no defined trail so we turned back after about a quarter mile and continued on the dirt road.

This is a good road if you're just getting into 4wheeling, very easy but has lots of good dispersed camping off the trail and a few other roads that off shoot and look like fun. Don't be intimidated by the rigs people bring on this trail Ive seen Subaru outbacks make it all the way

Beautiful, mostly heavily wooded trail with great views throughout. Very steep for the first 3/4 mile, i think it goes up almost 1000' in that distance. Got to the trailhead at about 7:15 am on Sunday and didn't see another person until I met up with the crossier mountain summit trail at the top, and it got pretty crowded after that. View from the top is spectacular.

Reconstructed trail is much higher above the stream. Trail is in excellent condition. Wild flowers are just starting to bloom. Come early to avoid crowds. Miss the numerous stream crossings, but understand why trail needed to be changed

Tried a new to me hike. Not bad, but in my opinion, the only great thing about it are the views. The trail itself is mostly a road for off-road vehicles. The gate wasn't open to them yet, so that was a plus. If hiking with your dogs, please note there is NO water on this trail. No streams, no creeks, no lake. I packed in water for my dogs and still had to skip part of the trail due to the heat. Therefore, it is a must to carry enough water for them and you, especially in the heat. Lots of exposed trail, so lots of direct sun. Ran into a couple from out of state that had a dog, and no water for them or their dog! They were only in about a mile in and their dog was already overheating. I gave their dog some of my water. Hike is easy in my book. There is a bit of steep uphill to get to the point up by the tower. Overall, not a bad hike, but I wouldn't want to do it when it is open to off-roaders.
