Located just outside of RMNP in the YMCA of the Rockies, the trail starts at the YMCA livery at the Glacier Creek TH that heads to the Glacier Basin campground. There is a sign where you break away from the Glacier Creek trail to Bible Point. At about .6 miles, there is a sharp left hand turn that heads straight up the mountain side. At the top is the grave of 18 year old Edwin Bradt. Nice views of the large Y grounds and on to Estes Park. Look for the mailbox beyond the grave for even better views all around. This is a short, but sometimes steep, hike.

Great quick hike if you want something close to the Y. Views of the YMCA and the peaks of RMNP from the top. Glacier Creek Trail is also in this area and will lead you into RMNP with excellent views about a mile in.

Hiked 5/24/18. Nice view at the top. The last bit of trail up to the top is a scramble. Good hike for the kids if you are staying at the YMCA.

It's ok, not very scenic a little smelly and right by Quebec which is a busy street, was able to walk a nice enough mile though

This hike starts off very easy, but starts the incline when you turn off Glacier Creek Trail. Be on the lookout for a sharp left hand turn straight up around .6 miles in. We missed it the first time and needed to backtrack.
