Hiking

Still tons of snow there and it was melted about that it was no longer snow. Was postholing up to my knees sometimes. But damn was it nice out there. Saw 1 person the entire hike. And the views were glorious. Will come back when there’s less snow so I can go further. Spikes were helpful in a couple places. Snowshoes might have been helpful too

This trail use to provide a great solitude hike into Mt Evans Wilderness. It’s become primarily a trail with heavy mountain bike use now though. I support mixed use trails, so just know it’s definitely mixed use with bikes, if you’re hiking. This is a great winter snowshoe trail, and I would recommend saving the hiking for winter if you want solitude.

It’s a beautiful trail!! the first 6 to 7 miles have been ridden by mountain bikes readily. After that it seems to be a little overgrown and some of downed trees. you could bring a personal pocket saw to do some trail maintenance. Otherwise very technical climbs technical fun & fast downhills a super nice trail. Moderate to difficult in my opinion. This trail just like all Colorado trails tends to be super busy on the weekends. parking is limited. the community surrounding this trail doesn’t like you parking on the road. Please be courteous of others

Great trail with lots of shade. Hit snow patches 5 mi in with some way finding but then you drop back down in elevation. Only went out 10 mi more down trees the further out I went.

Not ideal conditions, not well maintained. I wrenched my ankle on some rocks and hobbled back to the head after about 3 miles in. Not worth the hassle of getting there vs what you’ll end up hiking.

I would recommend snowshoes if you want to do more than a couple of miles of the trail. I made it 4-5 miles in just my YakTrax before I had to turn around due to post holing in knee deep snow every step.

Starts off harder and turns into moderate with lots of shaded forest. Saw tons of mushrooms and it was really beautiful. Two campgrounds along the way.

Some foot and bike traffic but minimal compared to most. Rocks ruin this trail.

Beautiful trail! Incline starts right from the get go making it a challenging run. Started postholing just over 3 miles in and I decided to turn around. Still enjoyed every second!

Nice forested trail that breaks out into open vistas every so often. A steady climb but nothing too steep. We didn’t see another human being on this Monday afternoon. The solitude and quiet was spectacular!

Beautiful forested trail with minimal views. We turned around a little after a mile. Trail was packed some, but snowshoes would be helpful, especially if you go further on the trail. We just used spikes. I'll be back when the weather is warmer.
