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.

This isn't a lung-buster like its relative (Humphrey's Trail) but aside from the long stretch through the meadow, the trail has steady ups and downs through roots and small boulders. That said, you should be fit if you plan to complete this round-trip because it does feel like you're in a 5 hour step class. I enjoyed plenty of solitude during the morning hours, most likely because I started ahead of the pack at 7:30 am. It was busy on my return trip around 10:00am. Still not as busy as Humphrey's.
