I did this back in August with a group of friends. Cloud Peak does not disappoint! We took 3 days to hike in, summit, and hike out and it felt comfortable. Easy to lose the trail at times due to miles of boulder - hopping when you make the summit push. Gorgeous wildflowers, amazing views! Listen to the weather though, you won't want to be up there when a storm blows through. It does have a narrow section that's not for the faint of heart!

Really hard trail but the views are worth it!

We hiked mid-October and it was a decent hike. Very rocky and not well marked....we missed a turn and went about a mile out of the way. Overall, good trail

Beautiful canyon, easy to follow trail, shady trailhead with pit toilets. Lots of poison oak along the trail, watch out.

A nice walk, even for flatlanders.

The views are spectacular on the trail and with a lot of other trails to join along the way. The trail itself is really rocky from beginning to end and not very clearly marked after the first half a mile.

Beautiful pond and lake, nice rocky trail. Lots of traffic. Not as quiet as we'd hoped, with the two legged as well as four legged kind. Lots of horse poop to dodge while we were there. My son reported the trailhead outhouse was in good condition. I'd go again, but in colder weather hopefully deterring much of the traffic.

Backpacked to this lake and camped before heading to do Cloud Peak the next day. Beautiful lake with lots of trees. We saw several moose both days we were there!

Definitely challenging. The amount of boulder fields makes it slow going, so start early! The views on the way up are breathtaking. We didn't quite summit because of our later start, so I can only imagine that the view at the top is well worth it. We will definitely be giving this one another try!

Views were amazing! Should have brought fishing gear, maybe next time. Saw a moose and lots of birds. Everyone was exhausted at the end - no complaints though, well worth the effort!
