Completely dry and nice views at Carpenter Peak. Saw some deer and a snake, along with some early spring flowers!

Great views! Highly recommend doing the loop using the power line and elk valley trails.

Great hike and terrific views from the peak. Just a bit icy in parts this late in year, watch your step.

Great trail without a ton of traffic, although I went in late February. A little muddy but well maintained otherwise, no poles needed.

BEAUTIFUL. It's marked as strenuous by the park itself, but this site has the rating correct. It's moderate. Fantastic views, great weather, and everything.

Beautiful winter hike! It's rated as strenuous at the park but I would definitely call it moderate if you are in okay shape. Beautiful views with the snow on the red rocks.

Beautiful colors in the fall... golden grass, green pines, red and gray rock.
