Absolutely breathtaking. Very easy hike and great view of the fall color's. Went last weekend but started right before sunrise before the crowd, good thing to because by the time we got back there was more than 100 people when there was only two cars when we started. Highly recommend to keep walking the trail till you get a gorgeous view of the Valley.

Easy hike but we did not go all the way to the end either, maybe about a mile or two. It is quite beautiful, full of aspen trees and wild flowers, great for the little ones. A little bit off of the trail there is a surprise waiting for you but I won't ruin the surprise for yo to explore. The trail is also partially shaded for at least the first mile or two. Lots of bikers in the afternoon hours so be prepared to move over a little to let them pass you.

A little snowy in early October, but beautiful none the less! Pretty busy after 10:00, parking was a little tricky, didn't see any bikes though. Overall a great hike, I will do it again!
