Absolutely beautiful. We started the trail at 7 am and had amazing weather. Sadly we didn't see any wildlife but were amazing with the cleanliness and beauty of the trail. We are moderate hikers and we managed it well. Being water and snacks and be prepared to stop and take pictures. Saw plenty of dogs that were doing great and loving it. Highly recommend

Gorgeous trail. The fern lined trails are breathtaking, the views are just amazing!! Just enough up and down to make it a great workout. At some points the trail is quite rocky. We did come across a large black bear near the trail, he wasn't too interested in us, and one deer. Really enjoyable!!!!!

Beautiful cedar, pine and fern-lined trail at an altitude to keep you cool in the summer.

Gorgeous trail! loved the aspen groves as well as the rock formations. Lots of ups and downs, but none long. We saw a variety of wildlife including elk, deer, a coyote, and a fox.

Ups and downs are great when starting, but not pleasurable when returning. Reviews before me described the trail very well.

Easy accessible trail, a lot of ups and downs with some flat stretches going through meadows with beautiful views. The continuing trail after the ridge could be better marked, but definitely a great workout.
