Thought this was a moderate trail until we got to the rocks that made the trail steep. Definitely a fun one! Would do it again.

Stand tall at the very top of the ridge. It's exhilarating.

This was a really fun and challenging trail! The trail was challenging only because it is a gradual (steep in a few short bursts) climb for about 2 miles. Amazing western views once you get over the ridge. Took me about 4.5-5 hours to complete. I took the Homestead trail to Shadow Canyon then took Shadow Canyon to the Towhee trail back. Would recommend doing the opposite. I would take the Towhee trail out because it offers fantastic views of the Flatirons and such!

Great view of Boulder and Eastern Slope from the top. Route from NCAR is closed so I had to go to the southern regoin to start.

Almost all snow has melted and pretty fun climb.
