Pretty views and easy hike for fit teenager. Manageable hike for middle aged mom. Saw only two other hikers - and someone on horseback. Around 6 miles in and out - gradual incline. Would do again.

Very good trail. Fields & tree stands, lots of wildflowers, great views. Lots of pine tree were cleared and piled up. Did not see many other hikers & bikers.

The wildflowers are really putting on a show right now! There's no great ending to this trail, but it's a great quiet trail with vistas of surrounding mountains due to clear-cutting for beetle kill.

Nice Hike, good views on the way up and back down, but no real vista at the top. Take plenty of water because the dog's only going to get what you bring. This is a small segment of the Colorado Trail.

I love this trail for the views and serenity. There are very few people on the trail, some days I don't see anyone on my hike. The wildflowers are starting to bloom as of today!

This area was devastated by the mountain pine beetle, and a lot of the trees have been cleared away. However, this was some of the best wildflower hikes I've ever been on. A ton of variety and flowers that I rarely see.
