Closed until further notice while Larimer County upgrades area and Big Thompson Canyon & Hwy 34 is restored. Found out the hard way after scoping out the trail on this app the night before.

Hiked this 3 days ago. We had very good visibility so views to both Loveland and Estes Park were fabulous! This is pretty a vertical climb and bring plenty of water!

Started from Garden Gate TH. Good views. Good climb. Some steep and rocky areas and other sections go through open meadows.

This is my favorite hike! Definitely family friendly.

Both the "Summit Trail" and the "Nature Trail" are maintained by the members of the Loveland Mountain Club. Two things that are helpful to know about the"Summit Trail" trail: (1). It's a dry trail, there aren't any sources of water available, (2) If you want a nice summit view follow the little use trail from the summit cairn about twenty - thirty yards to the west for an excellent view of the Mummy Range peaks.

Crosier is a large complex mountain with three feeder trails leading to the main trail that traverses the mountain from east to west.

Great hike, definitely moderate. Rocky in parts and trees in others. Lots of flowers and butterflies about half way up. At the top it isn't easy to get a full view due to trees but it was definitely a beautiful hike with excellent views on the journey up!

Did the rainbow entrance. Pretty steep, but so pretty! Great views off the top.

Beautiful trail!! Took a solo trip up on a rainy/foggy day and saw 1 other human the entire time. We didn't make it to the summit because of the storm, but we loved what we did manage to get done. The Drake trail is rated as difficult on the map at the trailhead which I think is accurate.
