Wow what a great trail! Definetly on the hard side but worth the trip up to the summit and through the meadows !

One of the best hikes to do near Fort Collins. Great view from the top!

Managed to make it to the very top with my Colorado Mountain Dog, Klondike. No snow on the trail, (in December, which is highly unusual), but, both sides of the loop are filled with large rocks and rock faces, making this a moderately difficult trail to traverse. Would do it again, just with better socks next time...

there is no snow on the trail as of this day it takes you through a burnout area so not as pretty as others but the views at the top are awesome challenging for sure it's easy to get off the trail as you near the top so watch for the Cairns and you will reach a place near the top to go left or right go left we went right and got off trail overall nice hike

As far as front range/foot hills hikes go... this one's among my favorites. Id put this one behind some of the boulder group climbs like Bear or South Boulder Peaks but ahead of many others. Be careful on the meadow trail as I accidentally got off trail pretty close to the TH twice. It's faint and has many social trails branching off. the greyrock trail is excellent all the way. I wouldn't consider this one hard but just a very nice workout. Took me 3.5 hrs for the total loop including at least 30 mins relaxing and enjoying the summit. I definitely recommend this one!

Went up on a Tuesday. Hardly any traffic. Beautiful views at the top reward a tough uphill hike.

Amazing views, awesome hike. Our dogs loved it too. There are some spots you really have to climb over some larger rocks. We chose not to bring our kids on the Summitt portion however the Meadows portion would be fine.
