Wonderful hike. Moderate, not too hard. Does require some stream crossing. We go sun, rain and hail all in late July AND there was still snow on the ground at 10,600 feet. Beautiful trail with lots of wildflowers and gorgeous views!

Beautiful panorama. The climb is gradual and relatively smooth. The last couple hundred yards up to the peak is freeform scrambling over rocks. We felt unsure in spots.

Our round trip time was about three and a half hours including a lengthy lunch on the top

Beautiful trail. Great rewards for a not too hard hike. The views are beautiful to bad for the pine Beatles killing ALL the trees

Connector trail, runs from Fish creek trailhead to Opal lake trail. Connects to Opal lake trail approximately 1/4 mile north of the lake. Sign is very weathered for the trail where it splits off from the Opal lake side entry point.

This hike was great! I was visiting from Phoenix and was looking forward to this hike. The trail is well maintained making it easy to follow. The best part is the very end where you have to climb to the top over a bunch of boulders. Definitely make sure you do this because the views are worth it! After taking a handful of stops to enjoy the many views along the trail and eating at the top, i would say it took us about 3hrs round trip.
