I followed the Noble Meadows trail to the Painter's Pause and walked up to the Sleepy S trailhead then back. It was beautiful. The only drawback was the busy road next to the trail but it was easy enough to tune out. I should have brought more water with me, it was hot! I think it was six miles or so round trip on the paths I took. Lovely wild flowers and hummingbirds! Watch out for mountain bikers! Most of them are polite enough to warn you when they are coming up behind.

Really good workout with an incline. Mediocre views compared to some of the other hikes in Colorado

Definitely a challenge if you do the whole loop & the peak trail. Beautiful views, one of my favorite hikes so far this summer. Took 4 hours roundtrip.

Nice hike, moderate incline and nice views for the effort. Definitely worth taking the slight detour to the summit as you get great views of some high peaks to the west!
