Steep. Afternoon storm helped me decide not to finish. When sign says “view of Gore Range” stop and take a picture.

Beautiful views throughout. Lots of wildflowers. Moderately busy on July 4th but no bikes. Trail is narrow, so have to step off to pass others. Turnaround is just a trail junction, so nothing to celebrate per se. Still a nice hike though!

Really enjoyed this trail! It was a little narrow when you had to pass by someone, but there were great views of wildflowers and we heard lots of birds. I would certainly hike this again!

Nice trail. Not a whole lot of snow/mud until you get up about 2.5 miles past the sign. Unsure where the trail ends, we stopped at the creek a few hundred yards past the sign. Still really nice.

Not bad, pretty aspens, gorgeous view of the town. Kinda just stopped in the middle and breaks off to Ptarmigan peak which I didn’t know how far it was so I turned around. This particular trail was closer to 3.5 miles. Maybe the peak was only a half a mile away but it was getting dark and i needed food lol

Loved it! Fall colors still going strong and the trail was in great condition. A lot of the side trails have been blocked off so it’s easier to stay on the correct one. I’d encourage you to go to the left when the trail splits -at the “end” of this trail- and go about another 1/2 mile or so (where I stopped on my recording) for a **gorgeous viewpoint** with a bench. Perfect place to stop for a rest! Also- This trail is the most difficult the first 1/4-1/2 mile so don’t give up, it’s worth it! Note: My recording was messed up about a 1/2 hour in so I had to restart so the stats aren’t right if you start at the beginning of the trailhead.

Rewarded with magnificent fall foliage two days ago (10/2). We hiked past the 9570 summit of Angler Mt and continued to the Ptarmigan Pack Trail. At the junction we turned right (south) until we realized it was heading downhill, so we turned around and walked several minutes to the north, but didn’t find the famous bench. Not likely to repeat this hike as it is short, crosses and is partially paralleled by a new neighborhood road (not shown on any map), passes next to power lines which buzz and a transformer station, so generally not the wilderness experience I look for. But the trail itself is easy to follow, gentle, well-maintained, and the views to the west and north are magnificent for little effort. Good for out of town (not acclimated) guests, dog walkers, or just a quick leg stretch.

Came to see the fall colors and they didn’t disappoint. The trail head is in a neighborhood and has maybe 8 parking spots. It’s mostly a steady incline up with a few areas that level out. Ends abruptly into 2 different tails but it is well marked. Would only do this trail for the colors.

September 21, 2019 Great hike all the way up to the peak! Good trail conditions and great views the entire time. The trail is in nice condition and after the 2.5 mile mark you'll see few other hikers, most turn around at the overlook. It's a long, steady uphill, but worth it, especially on a clear day. You'll need layers since it is a lot cooler at the top, and you won't want them at the bottom. Treeline ends at 11,500 feet, but shade up until then. Took the benefit of late summer's lack of storms and got a late start at 9:40am. Weather was ideal, around 70 at the base, 45 at the top. Completed in under 5 hours, about 2:45 up and 2 down.

Beautiful fall colors. Trail is steep at times, and consistently uphill. Gorgeous views throughout. Only downside is the power plant next to part of the trail. Posting some pics.

Beautiful trail to wander in the height of fall. There are amazing views of leaves, mountains and the valley all the way up and down. Things to note: The parking lot is small and was full when we arrived late morning on a Saturday. There is no street parking allowed. Although the hike has some lovely shade it is 70% exposed and when it’s dry it’s very dusty. I’d recommend bringing plenty of water for you and your furry friend. It’s definitely a moderate trail with incline all the way up except for a few spots. Enjoy!

Decided to review this trail again for the fall! Gorgeous! Do it NOW! Still challenging vertical on the front end but completely worth it. Stunning views all the way up... Posting fall pics, the colors were breathtaking!

Beautiful views of Silverthorne and the Gore Range. Steep parts alternate with more gentle sections of the trail. In mid June, the wildflowers were beautiful.

Love the markings for flora! Steep at the start. Packed down and icy. Yak Trax would be a good idea in Winter. Lots of new home development :(

Somewhat steep beginning but quickly turns into beautiful views! Signs on the side of the trail identify the types of vegetation and plants which is great to share with visitors to the area.

Nice hike though beautiful meadows and forests. Considering it is late Julr, there were so many lovely wild flowers. Unfortunately the beginning of the hike was on a new home construction area, so it was noisy. After a while the noise faded away and it was peaceful.
