Great hike - I've done it twice when visiting CO. It's a short distance but non-stop incline. Pretty rocky and it's been crowded both times we've come. Make sure you keep going all the way to the backside....beautiful views!

Had a great afternoon hike with my daughter. She's in 7th grade and had no problems with this hike, except possibly the one point where there is some light climbing. Great views from the top!
