I love this trail! This is a great trail if you're looking for a workout as the first half is quite steep. And while you can see the highway, it's only for .3 mile or so. The rest of the hike is remote. And I didn't have any issues with mountain bikers.

Good workout- the grade is steady. Great view at the top.
Too bad that I could hear the highway noise most of the 4 hours on the trail. Watch out for mountain bikers.

I did not give this a 5 because there were a lot of mountain bikers, and because you could see and hear the highway most of the hike. It was a good workout, about half shaded. If I lived closer I'd definitely go again.

Really beautiful! Great views of the front range west and the foothills south of the trail. Still some snow up on the front range but no snow or wet spots on the trail. As I was leaving at around 10 am the parking lot had filled up and cars were already parked along the road. I'm sure it gets very busy in the late morning/afternoons. Lot only about half full at around 8 am.

I would rate this as a more difficult trail if you choose to go to the peak. Pretty steady up hill. But gorgeous views! The peak is worth the effort!

Enjoyable walk in the foothills. Nothing challenging start in meadow, then into the trees, the back to the meadow.

Loved it. Snowed on the way up, but not enough to really stick on the ground. No crampons needed. Sun came out just as we reached the peak.

Beautiful views. Gorgeous after recent snow. (Hiked 2 weeks ago.) It's a push to get to the peak but worth it.

Hello all, not sure if this is the right place to ask questions about this trail. So, i am wondering how long it takes the hike to do loop ? Thanks for your help,

Nice trails. In the morning mostly shade covered. Be prepared for lots of company. Popular with mountain bikers and trail runners.

Great day. Started out pretty hot in the meadow but some nice tree coverage and cloud cover higher up. I would disagree with prior posts as this trail was pretty open to the sun at least 50% of the time. Beautiful views at the top and well worth the extra 2 miles. Will definitely come back again-on a cooler day perhaps.

My kind of hike! Lots of shaded trees and forestry. Plenty of places to picnic and not too crowded. Went at 2pm.

This was an amazing hike. Lots of beautiful energy in that mountain if you can be present for it. I went Saturday morning and arrived by 630 am-there were 2 other cars. Took me 4 hrs to summit and make back down... there were easily over 100 cars and no parking left. Get there early! Plus, if you get there early it feels like it's just you and the mountain. Lots of hummingbird and other bird activity. Excellent way to start the day.
