This trail is truly amazing. Conquered it with a cat and a dog. I came from Denver so I parked at the Crescent City parking lot to save 20 minutes and not have to drive through Boulder. I’m not a very fit person and I was able to accomplish this trail, with a few breaks every so often lol. I also took the trail clockwise, for a bit of a challenge. I saw lots of chipmunks! You have 360 views nearly the entire hike. The trail conditions are good, there are a few steep parts where the sand/pebbles are really slippery so wear shoes with good traction or bring a pole. I didn’t have any falls but my buddy slipped a couple times. Definitely worth the drive! Perfect for a day hike.
