Great views with mellow trail. Does get really muddy on one side of trail.

Beautiful, easy hike. A great option for an rest day or to acclimate out of town guests. My personal 3 day summit county program would be this day one, Mohawk Lakes day two, then the hard stuff like Quandary or Bald Mountain on day three.

Love the diversity of interesting views that you get on this trail. You'll be hard pressed to find better views on an easier hike in the area. Highly recommended! See photos on my Instagram @seesienza.

I brought my friend visiting from sea level. Perfect way to show the beauty of Colorado without any strenuous work. Super easy for me, perfect amount of difficulty for her. Good place to bring dogs for a nice 2.5 mile loop walk. Was a bit muddy in parts and we both slipped and fell - we laughed it off. Highly recommend for a recovery day!

This is a beautiful hike but beware that it is NOT EASY. The woodsy portion has many rocks, tree roots and many small changes in elevation. The flatter portion can be quite muddy and slippery. I would rate the trail a strong Moderate. Again, very beautiful, but know what you are getting into.

It was a beautiful hike. The north side was muddy because of the time of the year. Don't wear your good hiking boots. The views were unbelievable!!
