This trail offers a nice north slopes alternative to Barr Trail for getting back down to Barr Camp. But you have to hitch a ride from the summit down to the trailhead. You won't see many other hikers on this trail.

Nothing special.

This post is not correct. It is six or 7 miles to bar camp via this route and then another 6 miles to the top of Pike's Peak. Beware!
