Nice trail to Lower Diamond. Some up and some down. Nice variety. Several stream crossings. Saw a few Moose. There were a few small patches of snow to traverse to middle diamond. After that the trail basically disappears. Approach Upper Diamond through the small boulder field on the left.

I gave this hike a high rating because it truly is a beautiful and enjoyable hike. once you venture past Montgomery Pass and shoot over to North Diamond Peak you start to loose the trail. Keep following the ridgeline and you'll make your way. Once on North Diamond Peak, I advise turning around and hiking out the way you hiked in, vs doing the loop. Maybe it's because we had a little bit of snow still on some of the ridge line but, it was nearly impossible to find the descending route, and even when you found part of it, you'd loose it again. We ultimately just followed the river down. Way steeper and hard on the knees and ankles (I am also an avid hiker). The views were phenomenal definitely worth the hike, I just advise you to head out the way you hiked in once you reach the North Diamond Peak from the Montgonery Pass start.

17 miles from No. Boulder. Not too long; not too short. Trail is beside and above the St. Vrain river. Brought my lab and he was happy as can be (off leash). Beautiful forested & fairly level trail. Was not too crowded today. I think we passed at most ten people. Great local for nearby camping, too. About 12,000 steps for those counting. Beautiful, nice afternoon hike.

This is one of our new favorite trails! There are views and fun lookout spots all along the way, and a great time was had by all. As people mention, the last 1/4 of the hike was very steep, but the breathtaking views were worth hearing our kids whine about how hard it was :). Even Estes, our 5 month old puppy enjoyed this hike and appreciates the dog-friendly trail.

Really fun hike. Gets a little hairy up near the summit. Easy to lose the trail and you'll end up scaling large rocks. But when you get to the peak, the 360 views are so amazing. Definitely worth it

Gorgeous hike! Drove through Poudre Canyon for an hour from Fort Collins and was thinking I should really stop and take a picture. Glad I didn’t, got much better views during the hike. Our dog was tired from a long hike the day before, so we were only able to see the first 4 miles, but it was completely worth it. Small section where we needed to carry her (medium sized pup) over some rocks, but other than that, she loved it, especially being able to cool down in the water a couple of times along the way. Has plenty of camping spots on the way if you are interested in staying overnight. Regardless, do bring bug spray though! They are definitely out there. 7/7/20

A very nice moderately used trail. It would be excellent as a starter trail to get used to the altitude. Lots of shade. Moderate altitude gain.

Did the hike on 8July,2020. Highly recommend bringing layers as it gets super windy as you get to the top. Come to the trailhead early to find parking. We got there by 7am and had to park on the street by the trailhead. The road leading up to the trailhead is best for vehicles which have a little more clearance than a sedan. Just keep an additional 30 minutes to drive down this road if you do have a smaller car since you will want to go slow. The hike itself was super pretty with plenty of wildflowers in bloom and amazing views and waterfalls along the way. The view of the glacier before you start scrambling up can take your breath away. You'll know you're at the summit when you see two wind shelters at the top.

Waterfalls, streams, and a great little lake at the top. We got on the trail at 9:00 and got to the lake around 11:00. Most of the incline happens in the last mile to the lake, otherwise it’s very gradual. Our dog did great! Saw a few fly fisherman at the lake who caught 3 small browns. Overall an amazing hike that isn’t too tough.

This is always a favorite hike. The wildflowers are not at peak quite yet though but are abundant on second half of trail. We had not problem with mosquitos contrary to what others are saying.

Great hike! Much longer (and harder) than we anticipated. We took Greyrock mountain trail up and then Greyrock meadow trail down, which extended our hike. Recommend bringing more than one water bottle per person. Beautiful view from the top, however, it is easy to lose sight of the trail at the top. Side note- we came across two snakes on the trail going up!

Peaceful Valley campground entrance is open as of July 9, 2020 . We drove up from there all the way to the top in a Jeep Wrangler with 33's and 3 inch lift. There we some rough areas where we had to crawl and once or twice picked the wrong line but no problems getting to the top and back.

This is my favorite trail to date for kids and dogs! Lots of shade and water. Super fun and a good distance. I will def do this again! Parking lot is small but street parking is okay where marked!

63 years old today. Did the loop (5.7 miles total) with my wife. Primitive trail was awesome and sometimes challenging. Make sure you have lots of water. Saw three other hikers on the high trail.

Shady and a bit breezy, a small escape from the heat.

The trail was perfect today 8th of July, 2020. All the little bridges crossing all the little streams, kept the trails dry, and out feet too. We only made it up to the big waterfall / bridge spot, about halfway, so we will have to go back. The Aspen trees mixed with the pine trees early on, makes for an especially lovely woods to hike through. And there were Columbine flower all over. It was 72 degrees at the parking lot next to Moffit Tunnel, and it got noticeably cooler as we hiked up, which was so nice. It was 93 degrees Fahrenheit once we go back down to Boulder.

This trail was very steep the majority of the way up. I’m in pretty good shape and had a difficult time toward the end. However, the views at the top are absolutely worth it. It can be easy to get off trail but people have laid down logs.
