Nice, easy trail, with a steady incline. Mostly pine trees, with some aspens. Enjoyed the peaceful scenery and the view of the peaks.

I went early this morning with my two dogs and we went up to Elden. It was absolutely beautiful! Much nicer now that's it's cooling down. Got there about 8am with only one other group on the trail. But on the way down I came across someone about every 5 minutes. So if you want to beat the crowd, go early!!!!!
