If you do this hike while the gondola is running you can chose to skip either the uphill or downhill portions of the hike by taking the gondola, however, the hike is an enjoyable out and back as well.

Always my first hike when I am in the Vail area! Takes about 2 hours going up at a leisurely pace and can take the gondola down for free (dogs can ride down too). Good mix of aspens and open fileds. Amazing views from the top of Gore mountains.

Great morning hike about 3 miles to the top that takes about 90 minutes. We took our 4 and 2 year old boys about a mile up the following day. Not an "easy" hike with young kids but they loved it.

Had a blast on this trail! Hoping to do it again tomorrow morning! It's just weird getting to the top and having all the hustle and bustle of the adventure park if you just want peace and quiet.

Beautiful trail with nice shady glades. A bit busy. Narrow in many spots, which makes it somewhat tricky when passing with dogs.

I didn't like this trail. My main issue is the lack of payoff after a very grueling, steep hike to the top. The views of the surrounding mountain peaks were nice, but not outstanding. There are much better trails in the area if you're looking for views of the mountains.

Going up was definitely a work out but the views were well worth it!
