This trail is very hard at times if you start on the Green Mountain Falls side. But the view is WELL worth it.

It's a great trail with a major elevation change! The switchbacks really help however you are climbing the whole way. The trail is well marked until the last part to the reservoir. You can take your fishing pole and have a great break by the visitor center at the top however the visitor center does not have water. My wife carried out two year old on her back and my five year old (who's a go getter) hiked the entire way. Couldn't ask for a better hike!

Steep Trail. HIKING POLES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED! Very Beautiful Trail with breath taking views. Very Good workout! The rewards of this trail are worth it. Ends at the Crystal Reservoir at the base of Pikes Peak. Becareful on the trail. There are some very narrow parts of the trail with steep mountain sides. Bring plenty of water.
