Fairly easy trails. Great variety of options to make your hike longer. Nothing does beat the view at the Top of The World park.

The views were great. The hike was nice at the beginning of the hike we went down and that was nice but hard on our way back especially because there was no shade and I was tired. I would definitely do this hike again. The park at the top is beautiful.
