Great hike. We took our dog up with us and she loved it. We had to take a couple breaks here and there because the air was thin but I would highly recommend. Beautiful views.

Nice trail with fantastic panoramic views at almost every turn. Take your time if you aren't used to the altitude and take a wind break for the upper potions of the route.

Great views, solid challenge with the elevation gains, some snow left in parts. Windy and chilly up top so bring a hoodie!

Very snowy but manageable with boots and sticks. Incredible views from up top.

I went late in the wildflower season, about August. Up this high, still plenty of flowers blanketing the ground. I wouldn't say it's difficult, but it's not easy, either. It's high, so if you're not acclimated to altitude, it might get ya. Once you get up, you can see forever. One of my favorite days hiking (oh, and I saw no one else on the hike, on a weekday)
