on Meadow Creek Trail

3 days ago

Very pretty and pretty easy,will do again if passing through but rather long drive on a Sunday for a short hike....but it wasn't crowded and lots of pretty views

Great for snowshoeing. This is my go to hike for bringing out of town guests who haven't acclimated to the altitude. It's also a hike I like to do when I have other things to do, but need a walk in the woods, because it doesn't take very long and the lake is peaceful.

Great views perfect distance!

Very challenging trail, especially the last half. Beautiful views at the top. Grab a walking stick at the trailhead, you'll be glad on the way down.

A relentlessly steep hike that should take about 2 hours for someone in pretty good shape. Great near-panorama views from the top point.

Excellent hike. Short but very steep to the top. Once at the top, highly recommend going an extra quarter mile to a point to see the view of Frisco and the lake. Bring a hiking pole or walking stick for the descent.

I planned this hike for my family so we could all get in some last minute hiking before our vacation ended. The night before I was looking up some easy hikes in the Frisco, CO area and Mount Royal was listed. I thought it would be a fun little hike we could all enjoy. I was misled. Its steep from the trailhead all the way to the summit. Coming down was almost as difficult as getting up. I would recommend trekking poles for this hike as most of us were losing our footing a lot on the way down. Just need to make sure you're prepared with some poles or a hiking stick. If youre from the flatlands like my family (Iowa) just plan enough time to take plenty of breathing breaks on the way up. Still a great hike and its a feel good accomplishment when you finally make it!
