Description
Waypoints (0)

Users have noted that the scramble up the rocky peak is poorly marked. The pond towards the top obscures part of the trail, but it is circumnavigated fairly easily by rock hopping. On the way down, taking the meadow trail adds a mile or so, but it offers a completely different experience and expansive views west. The majority of the hike is exposed, so prepare for the elements.

Perfect dry conditions and great weather. Solid intermediate to skilled trail if going all the way to the peak. Half mile of scrambling to get to the peak. Download the map beforehand as half the trail and the trailhead don't get signal. Though the trail was easy to navigate without snow.

The trail has amazing views at the top, but it loses one star for the difficulty of navigation and trail maintenance. As of this writing, their is some snow at certain points, I did not use spikes, but I would take them just in case. It can get very difficult to follow the trail once you start summiting it and you may have to make your own path or try and follow the app. The easiest way I figured it out is whenever you see a body of water, stay left, going right seems more difficult. Also their are a lot of trees down in the area making the trail disappear. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this trail if you are adventurous and in shape.

A little slush at the bottom, but snow packed from midway up. Great trail.

Great hike! Today trail was 99% dry. The few icy spots were SLICK - be careful. Definitely recommend downloading trail map as there were just a few spots where route-finding was needed. We started hiking just before 8 am and only a handful of cars in the parking lot at that time.

Still pretty icy and snowy in parts in the first .5 miles, then fairly clear except in some shady areas. Top had snow and the pond was frozen, but not little to no snow on the rocks at the top.

lots of snow, but not much ice, didn't make it to the top (dog got too tired) but until 2.5 miles in, conditions were great! a couple downed trees, but easy enough to get over or around.

HikingGreat!

About 1 mile into the meadows (west) part of the loop trail there is a down tree and I had to turn around. There were no footprints in the snow on the other side so you will have to trail find beyond that point. 12/30.

Parking lot was really Icey, and some parts of the the first mile of trail were really bad. But the rest of it was beautiful and you walk through the burned down portion of the Forrest.

Great night hike! Fun scramble to the summit. Great way to see Fort Collins at night and the stars in the sky. Will go back to experience in daylight. Snow was packed spikes helped. Spots of ice to be aware of
