This is such a beautiful hike we did back in 2013 the day before our Longs Peak climb. Be sure to continue on to Mt. Chiquita where the views are just amazing. Get there before 8 a.m. to get one of the few parking spots along Old Fall River Road.

We had to turn back because a storm was coming but we made it most of the way so I'm counting it. It was beautiful up there.

Low traffic, great views at the top, nice mix of forest, fields, exposure. Very windy (hiked it twice), bring layers.

Great hike with breathtaking views at the top! Difficult when still adjusting to the altitude, but good mix of flat/steep terrain. The summit was a great place for a picnic
