Hiked this on 9.9.17. Started at 8:15 going clockwise and there were only a few parking spots left at the trailhead (plenty within a half mile though). Nice hike with a variety of landscapes. Aspens were just starting to turn. The meadows on the eastern half of the trail were really pretty.

This hike we thought was hidden valley which is easy, but turned into the burro trail which is pretty hard. Very steep incline entire way up. Some nice shade at the top but the bottom of the trail is fairly open so wear lots of sunscreen and bring a full camelback. Not too many people if you go early. Make sure to bring lots of snacks because this trail is a workout. Overall we'd do it again.

Nice hike. Wasn't technically difficult, but had some large steep stretches. Great views and wasn't too busy.

This is a great trail with clear signs and decent amount of shades. The terrains are steep and demanding at times with lots of loose rocks, therefore pay extra attention to where you step as I slipped and almost sprained my ankle three times descending. View from the peak is nice but not spectacular, I wish I brought some extra treats to reward myself. Bring 2L of water, more if you hike in the summer heat. Overall was a great hike, would recommend.
