Pretty and quiet trail, bit of a challenge in parts- I can see some parts being very slippy in wetter weather. Trail offered a bunch of Tree cover which our pup was grateful for. Plenty of Aspens on the lower part of the trail to see some Fall colors in the coming months too

Fun, but pretty tough trail. Definitely leans difficult over moderate, as there's a lot of uphill! It was pretty empty today given that it was drizzly and grey, but I'm glad it was cool because we were sweating! $7 park pass can be bought with a credit card at the visitor center. We added the out and back up to Windy Peak as well, some very pretty views! We'll definitely be back.

My suggestion for this Trail is it is not moderate. This is a pretty tough Trail and plan some time to do the whole thing so you can rest

We went early April and it was beautiful! Definitely make the trip up to Windy Peak, it was the highlight of the trail. No snow on the trail.

Nice little hike. Was able to take the kids. Our 5 year old enjoyed it and didn't really struggle. Some great views and nice little forest sections
