We hiked with a group and enjoyed this trail. I am glad to see the hard ranking as it got my heart pumping even if it was only about three miles long.

Beautiful morning hike! Hillside ridges, aspen forest, mountain meadows, and great views of the mountains to the west, Telluride town and the ski mountain.

Did this hike in a light but consistent rain and was still wonderful. Nice quick in town hike giving great views of Telluride and the ski slopes. A little over one mile incline through beautiful aspens to the top for fantastic views of mountains and waterfalls then 2 miles down back into the forest, crossing a bridge over a creek, and back right into to town. The forest and vegetation was super green and lush the entire hike. Pretty wildflowers and birds on the way too!

Great views from the top.

This was a fun easy trail. I took all four kids with me, we caved, crawled in the ice fissures and hiked to the end. The overlook was gorgeous and the kids loved it. Well worth it!!

Started with the switchbacks (most people seem to end with them) and wasn't sure I even wanted to continue due to the flies, dust, and gravel but once we cleared the switchbacks, it was totally worth it! I would recommend ending with the switchbacks!

Strenuous, yet rewarding hike. Some of the most beautiful views of Telluride. A must-do hike in Telluride.
